Create the right recipe for you on #timetotalk day

07 Feb 2019 | By Big White Wall

The theme for this years’ Time to Talk Day focuses on picking the right ingredients to keep your mental health on track. Whilst Time to Change want to create the best environment to start conversations about our mental health, we’ve looked further at how we can create the best recipe to support positive mental health. Like everyday cooking equations, ingredients can be adapted to suit everyone’s needs and tastes.

The same can be said for your mental health equation.

  1. Change up the ingredients – everyone is different. Resources, tools and treatments for your friends’, loved one or colleague’s mental health may not work, or be suitable, for you.
  2. Timing is everything – we all need varying levels of support throughout different periods of our life. Equally, we live busy lifestyles and it’s vital to find support mechanisms that fit in with our daily routines.
  3. Don’t be afraid to ask for help – this is the core message of Time to Talk Day, it can seem a big challenge to talk about what you’re facing, however, opening up to someone can make a really big difference.

If you know of anyone in need or would like to talk to us, please do try and register with us. We know it can be uncomfortable, awkward and sometimes scary, but we’re here for you, whenever you’re ready.

You’re not alone.
