It's Time to Talk about Mental Health
25 Jan 2016
University event to help break the silence on Thursday, 4 February (11am – 2pm) in University Place Foyer and 1st Floor, Atrium
One in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year (Mind), yet there continue to be stigmas and misconceptions around mental health.
Having a mental health problem is hard enough, but sometimes the isolation and stigma can make it even worse.
Help break the silence
Thursday, 4 February 2016 is Time to Talk Day, a day for the nation to take five minutes to have a conversation about mental health and tackle the stigma surrounding it.
On this day, we’re asking students and staff to:
- Talk - don’t bottle things up. Talk to an advisor, tell us your story or have a conversation online;
- Get informed - about the services available for you or someone you know;
- Take a break - join our charity bake sale and information sessions in the University Place foyer ‘iZone’ and upstairs in the Atrium communal area between 11am and 2pm on Thursday, 4 February (proceeds to Mind);
- Do something small that can make a big difference - meet with friends, take part in an activity or join a group.
Get involved and make a difference
