Ramtech holds Let’s Talk to support Time to Talk Day

 

Ramtech is supporting Time to Talk Day and encouraging as many people as possible to choose to talk about mental health.

 

Time to Talk Day is organised by Time to Change, the campaign to change how we all think and act about mental health and is led by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness. Time to Talk Day aims to get as many people as possible talking about mental health.

 

According to leading research, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health issue or concern in any given year, but many of us are too afraid to talk about it. Starting a conversation about mental health might seem daunting but simply sending a text, checking in on a friend or sharing something on social media can help to break the ice.

Jackie Stephenson, HR Manager at Ramtech said: “We are taking part in Time to Talk Day because mental health is a topic that we should all feel able to talk about. Having these all-important conversations can make a big difference to a wide range of people. The more we talk, the more we can help raise awareness.”

 

Jo Loughran, Director of Time to Change, said: “Conversations have the power to change lives – helping to end the isolation, shame and worthlessness that too many of us feel when experiencing a mental health problem. Time to Talk Day is the one day of the year when we want the whole nation to have a mental health conversation.”
