It’s Time to Talk about Mental Health – Thursday 4th February, 11am – 2pm
University Place Foyer and 1st Floor, Atrium
1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year (Mind), yet there continues to be stigmas and misconceptions around mental health.
Having a mental health problem is hard enough, but sometimes the isolation and stigma can make it even worse.
Help break the silence
Thursday 4 February 2016 is Time to Talk Day, a day for the nation to take 5 minutes to have a conversation about mental health and tackle the stigma surrounding it.
All this week, we’re asking students and staff to:
- Talk – don’t bottle things up. Talk to an advisor, tell us your story or have a conversation
- Get Informed – about the services available for you or someone you know
- Take a Break – join our charity bake sale and information sessions in the University Place foyer ‘iZone’ and upstairs in the Atrium communal area, 11am – 2pm on Thursday 4th February. Proceeds to Mind mind.org.uk
- Do something small – that can make a big difference Meet with friends, take part in an activity or join a student or staff network group.
Help break the silence and end the stigma
