Top Tips for Time to Talk Day

Talking about your feelings can help you stay in good mental health and deal with times when you feel troubled.

Everyone knows that talking about problems and feelings is a great way to some of the pressures of daily life, and can even help when we’re struggling with our mental health. But it isn’t easy.

Our trained volunteer mentors provide the independent ‘listening ear’ to help people with a variety of struggles, while our volunteer counsellors help young people talk through the challenges they face. But there are other ways to reach out and find the support you need – you might even find you’re not alone in the issues you face.

Some ideas for this Time to Talk Day include:

  • Reaching out to trusted friends or family – it doesn’t have to be in person, sometimes a text can get the ball rolling
  • Contact other charities like Mind, Rethink, or the Samaritans
  • Explore talking therapy options with your GP
  • Share
