Why talking is important....

One in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year. Talking about mental health reduces stigma, helping to create supportive communities where we can talk openly about mental health and feel empowered to seek help when we need it.  That's why opening up the conservation about mental health problems is so important - by talking about it we can support ourselves and others.

However you do, it have a conversation about mental health. #timetotalk
