Time to talk day - 7th February 2019

Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it. For people with mental health problems not being able to talk about it can be one of the worst parts of the illness. So by getting people talking about mental health we can break down stereotypes, improve relationships, aid recovery and take the stigma out of something that affects us all.

The University's Mental Health First Contact is a network of trained staff who are a first point of contact if you are experiencing emotional or psychological distress. They are trained to recognise the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues and provide help on a first aid basis and guide you towards the right support services.
