Time to Talk Day - 4 February

Friends group

Time to Talk Day is an annual event that promotes the key message: Small conversations about mental health have the power to make a big difference.

It's an important reminder that we need to be having honest conversations about our wellbeing and help end the stigma around mental health.

Find out more about Time to Talk Day and how you can get involved, sign up for the virtual festival and download free resources.

Our frontline digital toolkit: Supporting the mental health of NHS staff

As part of the support service, Our Frontline, Mind has developed a set of wellbeing resources, funded by the British Medical Association, to provide a starting point for NHS leaders and line managers, who want to prioritise the mental health and wellbeing of their staff.

The first part: The role of NHS leaders in reducing mental health stigma and creating mentally healthy cultures, was launched on Time to Talk Day, and will be followed by additional resources in the coming weeks. 

The resource contains tools and information on encouraging staff to talk about the pressure on their mental health, without the fear of being judged or treated differently. It also contains actions that employers can take to encourage staff to access and share the resource. 

Further support

The following tools and resources can further support your mental health conversations with staff on Time to Talk day:
