In an ideal world, we’d all feel free to speak about our mental health, without any fear of how other people might react. But in the real world, sometimes we need encouragement and reassurance to feel safe to talk. That’s a big part of what Touchstone’s services provide, and it’s also a big part of the reason behind Time To Talk day.
Each year on 1st February, people are encouraged to speak about their own experience of mental health and mental illness. Partly for our own benefit, partly to encourage others to speak up.
Meeting of Minds – the mental health service users forum in Kirklees – are holding an awareness day event at Dewsbury Town Hall on 1st February from 12 noon to 3pm. Drop in for a chat, a cup of tea and some fun activities.
