This year, Time to Change is highlighting that there are lots of different ways to have a conversation about mental health. And you don’t have to be an expert to talk.

Join us and have your conversation about mental health. Bring your lunch; have a hot drink and a slice of cake; get talking and help break the silence around mental health problems.

There will be a donation box with proceeds going to Mind

In 2014, the University of Bath and Students Union signed the Time to Change pledge which joined us with a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health. The pledge committed all of us to promote attitudes and behaviour that foster mental wellbeing and to work to eliminate the stigma and discrimination often felt by those with mental health problems.

That’s why on February 7, we’re again taking part in Time to Talk Day – because we should all be able to talk about mental health anywhere, including at work. Talking about something helps to break down the barriers.

Please be aware that we are unable to provide individual advice on issues. If you need help for yourself, please contact Student Services if you are a student, or the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) if you are a staff member. Time to Talk Day is organised by Time to Change, the campaign to change how we all think and act about mental health problems, led by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness
