PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

Time to Talk Day

The pandemic continues to have a big impact on many people’s mental health. While there is no ‘right’ way to talk about mental health, today (3 February) is Time to Talk Day – an opportunity for us all to be more open about our mental health and how we’re feeling, if we want to.

It’s important to feel comfortable and safe while having these conversations. Tips for supporting a friend or family member who may be struggling include asking open-ended questions and taking time to just listen. For more information, visit timetotalkday.co.uk/tips-to-talk

Mental health support for children, young people and families

Some of the hardest hit from a mental health and wellbeing point of view have been children, young people and families. From 7 to 13 February, it’s Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is ‘Growing Together’, encouraging children (and adults) to consider how they have grown, and how they can help others to grow.

Find out more, including resources for schools, youth groups, parents and carers at childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk

If you are a young person and are struggling with your mental health and wellbeing, you can find resources and support – including free, anonymous online support at camdenrise.co.uk/emotional-wellbeing
