Time to Talk Day

Live Broadcast for Time to Talk Day Roundtable LIVE Broadcast: Thursday 6th February 2020

In February I was lucky enough to be invited to be a guest speaker alongside staff from Lancashire Mind to discuss Time to Talk Day and the importance of people feeling able to speak out about their mental health.

Panellists who attended were:

  • Charlotte Lowe – Psychological and mental health support worker
  • Holly Mannion/ Community Development Lead – Lancashire Mind
  • Bryony Littler/ Wellbeing Coach Lead – Lancashire Mind
  • Hannah Gorman/ Wellbeing Coach Lead – Lancashire Mind

Time to Talk Day is led by two national charities ‘Mind’ and ‘Rethink Mental Illness’ and focuses on the importance of us all talking about our mental health. As we know, our mental health is just as important as our physical health and it is so important for us to feel able to talk to others about how we are feeling. However, many people still feel too afraid to talk about how they are feeling emotionally and this needs to change. Campaigns such as these are therefore essential.

Please find below the direct Vimeo links to each of the broadcasts for Primary and Secondary schools, as well as Colleges and Universities. Discussions are aimed at educational settings and explore different ways that mental health and wellbeing can be supported for both pupils and staff:
