Many of you may have heard or taken part in Time to Talk day, which took place earlier this month on 2 February 2017.

In Knowsley, we held a drop-in coffee morning at Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park, which was very well attended.  A range of organisations who could offer support and activities to help keep your mind and body active were also on-hand to offer their advice.

Whilst Time to Talk day is a national event encouraging people to talk about mental health, I would encourage people to talk mental health regularly. For some reason, there is a stigma around mental health and by encouraging people to talk about it will help to break down these barriers.  

Mental health affects one in four people every year and nine out of ten who experience mental health problems say they have faced negative treatment from others.

You can find out more about Time to Talk, along with information about the types of mental health, myths and facts, and how you can play your part if you have a friend, colleague or relative who has mental health issues by visiting www.time-to-change.org.uk

If you have concerns about your own mental health, or that of a friend or family member, please speak to your GP.
