Hope you are keeping well?  This week it is ‘Time To Talk’ day on the 02/02/23 and I wanted to share with you the link with resources, information about what it is all about and how you can take part. The day is all about creating supportive communities by having conversations with family, friends, or colleagues about mental health. We all have mental health, by talking about it we can support ourselves and others.  Please follow this link for further details; How to take part - Time To Talk Day
