Sussex Coast College Hastings helped to raise awareness about mental health and national Time to Talk day last Thursday by hosting an event organised by Southdown Peers in Partnership, designed to get people talking about mental health. SCTP is happy to share this example of good practice. Time to Talk Day is a national campaign led by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, intended to encourage people to speak out about their mental health and end widespread stigma. It was launched in 2014 and is held on the first Thursday in February. So far the day has reached millions of people, enabling vital conversations about mental illness at work, in schools, and between friends and families. It’s also a chance for bosses to think about stigma at the workplace, and includes an Employer Pledge.
