Time to Talk Day is the nation’s biggest mental health conversation. Happening every year, it’s a day for friends, families, communities, and workplaces to come together to talk, listen and change lives.
On 1 February 2024 make space in your day for a conversation about mental health.
Keep an eye on this page for ideas for how to take part, from organising an event in your local area or hosting a lunch and learn session to sharing information on social media or texting a friend.
8 ways to start a conversation about mental health
- Tell someone you appreciate what they’ve done for you
- Talk about how money worries can impact mental health
- Talk to a friend about a celebrity who has spoken openly about mental health
- Share something about #TimeToTalkDay on social media
- Sometimes writing is easier, check-in with a friend over text
- Talking side by side can be easier, try talking while walking or cooking
- Listening is just as important as talking, ask someone how they’re feeling
- Have a chat over lunch with a friend
