#TimeToTalk Day - take 5 minutes on 5th Feb to talk about mental health!

People talking and laughing

We're encouraging people in Derbyshire and beyond to have a conversation about mental health on Thursday 5 February for Time To Talk Day. There are lots of ways to get involved...  

  • Come and talk about dementia at our public question-and-answer event in Ilkeston at 6.30pm - learn more on the dementia Q&A page

  • Come and hear award-winning illustrator Kate Smith talk about how she has used her creativity to maintain her mental wellbeing - Kate will be at Arboretum Lodge in Arboretum Park in Derby from 2pm to 4pm
  • Read Leanne's story in First News, the national newspaper for young people, and then start a conversation yourself!
  • Cheer on Chesterfield Football Club on 14 February against Leyton Orient FC - there will be volunteers on hand to discuss mental health as part of the club's mental health awareness match day


Time To Talk Day is the brainchild of the organisations behind Time To Change. The aim of the day is to break the silence around mental health problems, which affect one in four people in any one year.

One in four people in any one year has a mental health problem such as anxiety, depression or stress. Research shows that work is the biggest cause of stress in people's lives, more so than debt or financial problems. That is why it is so important that on Time to Talk Day thousands of individuals and organisations will come together to show that it really is time to talk about mental health, breaking the stigma surrounding it.
