On Thursday 8 October, Time to Change launched their latest campaign to highlight the small things everyone can do to support someone who has a mental health problem. I’m very honoured to say that I was asked to take part in this campaign and feature in two videos raising awareness for mental health. No one should be ashamed of having a mental health problem, and no one should be ashamed of talking about mental health either.
As part of the campaign a brand new ad will be released that focuses on people sharing their first experience of talking about mental health and how that conversation has led to family and friends being able to give support.
There are lots of ways that you can get involved, whether it’s by sharing the campaign online using the hashtag #smallthings or ordering free materials to give out in your local community.
The campaign will run until late November so there’s plenty of time to get involved. Find out more here.
