Time to Talk Update

Thursday, 10 April

Following on from the Steps to Wellbeing's successful support of the national Time to Talk Day held on 6 February 2014, a national press release has been issued by the campaign and that nationally, together there were 1,066,506 conversations.

Thousands of you talked, tweeted, and made cups of tea and together we really got England talking about mental health. Have a look at our infographic to see how we made it past our million milestone.

The day was jam packed with events and over 1,000 activities taking places across the country. You can still catch up with our live blog from the day to get a flavour of what went on.

But the day was about so much more than just the numbers. You have told us about how the day provoked many inspiring, stigma busting and even life-changing conversations, and made it possible to talk more openly about mental health – which is what we need to do in order to break down stigma and discrimination. We surveyed people who took part and 93% said that Time to Talk Day made them feel more able to speak out about mental health.

If you didn’t get a chance to plan something for the day this year, or you did and you’re feeling inspired to do more, get Thursday 5 February 2015 in your diary now. After the success of the first ever Time to Talk Day, we’re going to be doing it again next year and we’ll be in touch to let you know more soon. In the meantime, there are lots of other ways you can get involved in Time to Change - click here to find out more.
