Time to Talk Day
On Time to Talk Day we ask everyone in Wales to have a conversation about mental health.
We are pleased to announce that we are now open for applications to become a TtCW Champion. We have refined our training so that we can begin to deliver it virtually, via Zoom with training dates coming up in May, June and July 2021.
On Time to Talk Day we ask everyone in Wales to have a conversation about mental health. Time to Talk Day is taking place on Thursday 4 February 2021.
Mental health problems are more common than most people realise - affecting one in four of us. Yet people are still afraid to talk about mental health, making some people feel ashamed or isolated. We are proud to be officially partnering with our friends Time to Change in England, See Me in Scotland and Change Your Mind in Northern Ireland for Time to Talk Day, to help get the nation talking.
The theme for 2021 is The Power of Small. A small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference. Let's start talking and together we will end mental health stigma. Start by using the hashtag #TimeToTalk.
It's a great day for communities, workplaces, schools, or anyone to get together and have a chat. If you're planning on getting involved we have lots of bilingual resources you can download and use including a Communications Pack for organisations which has everything you need to get started - from activity ideas to suggested tweets.
Walk and Talk
For Time to Talk Day 2021, we are pleased to announce that we are teaming up with Ramblers Cymru to encourage people across Wales to Walk and Talk. Ramblers Cymru is a walking charity who work to promote walking for health and pleasure. Sometimes it’s easier to have a conversation about mental health whilst doing something active such as walking. Whether it’s going for a stroll in a local park or hiking up a hill, walking is a great way to start a small conversation about mental health, to make a big difference. Why not arrange a socially distanced Walk and Talk with a friend or family member? We also encourage Employers to arrange a lunch break walk with colleagues. Take the opportunity to stay well and connected throughout winter. Share photos of your walks using the hashtag #TimetoTalk and we will repost across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
