Time to Talk Day 2023
The 2nd of February marks Time to Talk Day. Time to Talk Day is the nation’s biggest mental health conversation. Happening every year, it’s a day for friends, families, communities, and workplaces to come together to talk, listen and change lives.
Time to Talk Day was launched in 2014 by Time to Change, a campaign to end mental health stigma and discrimination, which was run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.
Lingwood Security promote their staff, family, and friends to have open and difficult conversations that will make them feel better afterwards. This day is about creating supportive communities and understanding mental health.
