Conversations change lives

“It’s time to talk because if you say something, you realise how many people around you haven’t, and needed to…”

One in four people will experience a mental health problem every year. Right now a friend, colleague or loved one could be going through their own challenges.

Talking about mental health doesn’t need to be difficult, but too many people with mental health needs feel unable to. Time to Talk Day is about giving people the chance to talk and to listen about mental health.

Throughout the day, we will be sharing quotes from people across Certitude who have had their own experiences with mental health, some examples of these are below.

Every conversation, every text, every share means more people are reached and more lives have possibly been changed. To get involved, tweet us with your experiences @Certitude and include the hashtag #TimetoTalk.

If you want to talk to someone about your mental health, you can also contact our team at Solidarity in a Crisis on 0300 123 1922. Our Peer Supporters have their own experiences of facing and overcoming crisis and are there to listen when people need to be heard.

By opening up to mental health, you can make a real difference.
