Today is Time to Talk Day! This year’s theme is the power of small conversations to make a big difference to our mental health and wellbeing.
We did a call-out to our colleagues across Concern Group, asking them to share the small conversations that have meant a lot to them – we’d like to share some of them with you!
“She looked me in the eye and just said: ‘That is not okay'”
This video is from Liz, one of our CBT therapists:
“It was a really kind gesture and it made me feel like I was being thought of.”
This video is from Kate, our Marketing and Communications Lead:
“I got the most beautiful message and had a lovely conversation with my little brother.”
This video is from Liam Gilfellon, our Director of Business Development and Relationships
“Just listen to what I said again, in the tone of somebody that loves you.”
This video is from Scott Vigurs, our Chief Operations Officer
We can see from these examples that even just a small conversation about mental health has the power to make a big difference.
We know that the more conversations we have, the more myths we can bust and barriers we can break down, helping to end the isolation, shame and worthlessness that too many of us with mental health problems are made to feel.
