Time to Talk Day
Thursday 2nd February 2023 is Time To Talk Day.
Time to Talk Day is the nation’s biggest mental health conversation. Taking place every year, it’s a day for friends, families, communities, and workplaces to come together to talk, listen and change lives.
There are a number of events being held across Surrey on the day.
End Stigma Surrey, supported by their partners Catalyst Support and Mary Frances Trust, are hosting three drop-in Tea & Talk sessions.
10am – 12:00pm at St Saviour’s Sunbury
1:30pm – 3:30pm at Stanwell Events
4:30pm – 6:30pm at Epsom Library
Alongside free refreshments at each session, there will also be mental health conversations, support and more. There will be opportunities to meet people with lived experience of mental health challenges, find out more about local services and support and what is available in your community.
Mary Frances Trust have also organised Walks & Talks in Epsom, Walton-on-Thames and Leatherhead.
The Loop will be out and about on the day helping to facilitate some of these events.
Other events in Surrey include a Time to Talk coffee morning at Camberley Library between 10am – 12:00pm. At the Horton Arts Centre in Epsom a crisis counselling volunteer will be on hand between 10.30am and 12.30pm, to talk with, informally or privately. Employers can also drop in to find out how to support employees by prioritising mental health.
Bringing things for this year to a close, on Tuesday 7th February, 11:00am – 1.00pm, take time for a cup of tea, some games and a chat at The Rainbow Cafe, run by Surrey Heath Age Concern, in Camberley.
