Time to Talk Day

Thursday 6 February 2020 is Time to Talk Day – a day when everyone is encouraged to have a conversation about mental health.
 
Time to Talk Day is run by Time to Change to help spread the word that you can talk about mental health anywhere – including at work.
 
Time to Change is England’s biggest programme to challenge mental health stigma and discrimination and is run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness. In 2014 QMUL signed the Time to Change Employer Pledge, a commitment to change how the university thinks and acts about mental health.
 
At QMUL, we know that it benefits all of us to talk about mental health. Everyone who works and studies at the university should feel they can be open about their mental health, and ask for support if they need it, from the following:
