As part of the Time to Change, Time to Talk campaign to show that it’s the little things which make a big difference, over 1,000 activities are taking place up and down the country tomorrow to get people talking about mental health. There are a number of activities taking part in Croydon tomorrow, so if you have time:
1. Between 11am and 2pm, pop down to the MIND building in Altyre Road, (near East Croydon station) for tea, homemade cake and a conversation about mental health.
2. Between 2pm and 4.30pm: borrow a book from our Living Library, with MIND in Croydon and Hear Us, at Croydon Library, Katherine Street (Clock tower)
Please click here to view the poster.
We can offer tea, coffee, and cake, while having a chat about mental health with someone who has lived experience
We will also be on Twitter all day encouraging you to talk about mental health so please get online and start a conversation. Don’t forget to use #TimetoTalk.
For more information about ways to get involved including tips and hints about starting your own ‘mental health conversation’, please visit the Time to Change Website, http://www.time-to-change.org.uk/talkday. You will find materials to download and lots more………including a competition called: how to “have a conversation to win a conversation”
