Time to Talk Day

22 February 2019

On the 7th of February, we invited the public to take part in an event for Time to Talk Day! This is a day dedicated to changing the way people think and act about mental health.
Over a cup of tea and a slice of cake, people were able to talk openly about their experiences of mental health and describe what it meant to them. We also hoped to encourage attendees to challenge their assumptions around mental health by taking part in a Mental health Quiz.
Melanie from Jones Building group joined us for the event and kindly supplied us with some art materials for the afternoon.
Members chose to create individual pieces of art or paint mandalas for wellbeing. They also worked together to make a Giant College about self-care the central themes of this seemed to be around food and nature. 
We had a really fun, creative and interactive afternoon and thank you to everyone who came together for mental health!
