Time to Talk Cafe

Tuesday 30th January 2018

10:30 to 13:30

1 West 2.01

 

Join us for a conversation about mental health, over a hot drink and a slice of cake from 10:30 to 13:30.

This year, Time to Change wants to spread the word that wherever you are, any place can be the right space to talk about mental health.

Too often it is left to people with mental health problems to talk aboout mental health. It's frequently treated as a taboo subject - something to be spoken about only in quiet corners. But mental heath affects us all, and everyone should feel able to talk about it.

The University and Students' Union together signed the Time to Change Pledge in 2014, committing us to 'promote attitudes and behaviour amongst staff and students that foster mental wellbeing and to work to eliminate the stigma and distrimination often faced by those with mental health illnesses'.

At last year's cafe, the University raised £90 which was donated to mental health charity MIND. This year the donations will go to Rethink Mental Illness.

There will be no fixed charge for the refreshments - there will be an 'honesty box' for your donation.
