It's time to help change attitudes

This Is Wiltshire: It's time to help change attitudes It's time to help change attitudes

TODAY marks the first ever Time To Talk Day from the mental health campaign Time To Change.

A recent poll has revealed only a third of people ask their friends and families how they are on a daily basis, and few people ever have conversations about mental health.

Today, the Time To Change campaign, led by mental health charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, is asking people up and down the country to have a conversation to help get mental health more openly discussed in order to remove the stigma.

This could be as simple as asking someone how they are, sending a text or having a conversation over a cup of tea.

Time To Change Director Sue Baker said: “Talking more openly about mental health is a powerful way of breaking down the stigma one in four of us with a mental health problem have to face.”

remove the stigma

Frankly I am tired of journalism telling me that someone’s prejudice is my “stigma.” Frankly I am tired of journalism cooperating with someone who claims someone’s prejudice is my “stigma.”

Remove it from your head.
