We're opening the doors at Heffernan House from 12:30pm to 3pm to welcome anyone who would like to come in for a chat and a cuppa on Time to Talk Day. The art room will also be open for anyone who’d like to try some mindful colouring.
Time to Talk Day is organised by Time to Change, the campaign to change how we all think and act about mental health problems, led by national Mind and Rethink Mental Illness. 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year, but many of us are too afraid to talk about it.
Time to Talk Day aims to get as many people as possible talking about mental health and this year, there are lots of different ways to have a conversation about mental health. Whether that is talking on a walk, or listening over a cuppa, conversations can make a big difference. Starting a conversation about mental health might seem daunting but simply sending a text, checking in on a friend or sharing something on social media can break the ice.
