Time to Talk Day

Thursday 2nd Feb 2017.           Conversations change lives


On Thursday 2 February, Time to Change is encouraging everyone to talk about mental health, with their Time to Talk Day.  Time to Change is a growing movement of people who are changing how we think and act about mental health.tttd_2017_web_carousel_970x450_1

Talking about mental health doesn’t need to be difficult. It can be as simple as making time to have a cup of tea or go for a walk and listening to someone talk about how they feel.

Being open about mental health and ready to listen can make a positive difference to someone’s life and this is what Time to Talk Day is all about – giving everyone the chance to talk and listen about mental health.



Time to Talk 2015


Last week witnessed a pleasing number of ALS staff attending our second Time to Talk afternoon.

Time to Talk is a national event which aims to raise awareness of mental health issues. We are indebted to two of our team who were brave enough to share their own experiences. Their words helped us to understand  clearly the problems some of our students face. More importantly, and in the spirit of Time to Talk, we were able to reflect on mental health issues that we might be unaware of colleagues living with.



A big thank-you to all those who were able to support this event which, hopefully, gave everyone ‘time to talk’.
