We are supporting Time to Talk Day and encouraging people to champion the campaign.
Time to Talk Day 2020 is taking place on Thursday 6 February. It gives the opportunity to choose to talk about mental health and help change lives.
About Time to Talk Day
Choose talk, change lives.
Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet too many people are made to feel isolated, ashamed and worthless because of this. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives.
We know that talking about mental health can feel awkward, but it doesn't have to. This year, we're using the popular game 'Would you rather?' to help break the ice and get the conversation flowing.

Active Sussex Time to Talk Day inspiration
In focus: RunningSpace – running to beat suicide - the inspirational Sussex organisation that delivers Walk2Run groups across Sussex.
The groups help support people with long term health conditions including mental health conditions and they also deliver 'safeTALK Suicide Alertness for Everyone’ training.
Active Sussex have invested Sport England Funding into Rother District Council to build the workforce needed to engage inactive people. What coaches and clubs are needed to make this happen?
RunningSpace builds on the Getting Rother Active programme run by Active Rother, supporting inactive residents to become more active. Active Rother provided the initial funding for several Walk2Run schemes within the Rother area and to support its sustainability, Active Rother has continued to support RunningSpace with funding for run leader training.
