Campaign reaches out for Time to Talk Day

mental health illustrationCoventry and Warwickshire’s Year of Wellbeing campaign aims to get everyone talking on Thursday 7 February, this year.

The campaign aims to inspire and empower people to make changes that will improve their wellbeing, and the wellbeing of people around them. That’s why they’re supporting Time to Talk Day, one of the key opportunities to raise the profile of mental health, each year.

This year’s national Time to Talk Day is all about bringing together the right ingredients to have a conversation about mental health. Whether that’s tea, biscuits and close friends, or a room full of people challenging mental health stigma, campaigners want to get people talking.

Coventry city centre will host the Coventry and Warwickshire Mind bus for the first time, with members of the public invited to get on board for a chat.

Steven Hill, Chief Executive of Coventry and Warwickshire Mind, said: “The Coventry and Warwickshire Mind Mental Health and Wellbeing Bus is one of the many ways we reach out to communities, to provide support so no-one experiences a mental health problem alone and to end the stigma around mental health.

“Join us to talk about mental health over a hot drink and a biscuit and browse the range of resources, including about Coventry and Warwickshire Year of Wellbeing.

“We are proud to support this important campaign to improve the health and wellbeing of all in our area.”

Explained Cllr Les Caborn, Warwickshire cabinet member: “We hope people wherever they are in Coventry and Warwickshire, will support this campaign and help spread the word that our wellbeing matters, and we can all do something about it!”

Added Cllr Kamran Caan, Coventry City Council cabinet member for public health and sport: “I am pleased to be able to support Time to Talk Day, and hope others show their support too. Just one conversation could help make a huge difference to someone’s wellbeing. It’s important to speak out and make sure we all get the support we need. It’s important you know you will be listened to.”
