Let’s get Hull and East Yorkshire talking about mental health!

By January 23, 2017No Comments

A local mental health charity is calling on people in Hull and East Yorkshire to get talking about mental health for the national ‘time to talk’ day on 2nd February.

Time to talk day is all about starting conversations about mental health- at work, at school, at home- wherever you are, whatever the time.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind is encouraging local organisations and individuals to get involved.

Peter Henry, Senior Wellbeing worker at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind said, “Mental health problems can affect anyone at any time. It’s important that we are all able to talk about it- even a short conversation can make a big difference. That’s why we’re asking people to take ‘time to talk’ on 2nd February to reduce the stigma around mental health, and make sure anyone suffering with mental health problems can talk about it and get the help they need.”

On 2nd February, Hull and East Yorkshire Mind will be out across the area, starting conversations about mental health. We invite you to join us.

Activities include-

  • We will be in the ‘chill out’ zone at St Stephens shopping centre (1st floor) starting conversations about mental health between 10am and 4pm
  • Time to talk drop in at our offices at Wellington House on Beverley Rd, Hull 1pm to 4.30pm so that anyone can pop by to have a chat with one of our staff to get advice and support about your mental health.
  • We will be at the new Coop store on Lincoln Way in Beverley between 10am and 12pm.

As well as incorporating time to talk in all of our regular activities that week.
