We invite our community and members to participate in Time to Talk Day on February 4th this year.
The day is ran by Time to Change in England & Wales; Change Your Mind in Northern Ireland and See Me in Scotland.
“Time to Talk Day is the day that we get the nation talking about mental health. A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.
We know that the more conversations we have, the more myths we can bust and barriers we can break down, helping to end the isolation, shame and worthlessness that too many of us with mental health problems are made to feel.
We need your help to start the conversation this Time to Talk Day – together we can end mental health stigma.”
This year with Time to Talk Day happening mostly online and with no face to face events events, the focus is around sending a message to another person and on creating a buzz around the day online.
You can order or print free postcards here by 20th January:
- England: Sign up for Time to Talk Day 2021 | Time To Change (time-to-change.org.uk)
- Wales: Time To Change Wales :Time to Talk Day 2021 Resources

On the day we would encourage you to film or photograph creative ways to get a postcard delivered to someone with a message about mental health using Parkour and movement Skills.
You could film yourself on the way to hand a postcard to a friend, find a fun way to put it in a postbox or come up with your own ideas. Then post your media with the tags #TimeToTalk and #EndMentalHealthStigma and tag the following organisation for your country:
