Would you rather kiss a jellyfish…

Posted on Updated on

…or talk to a friend who feels all at sea?

Surprisingly, for many the jellyfish is the preferred option.

But it need not be.

One in 4 of us experience a mental health problem each year.

It is not unusual.

It is not contagious.

A few words could be all it takes.

Time to Change work to promote discussion around the issues and preconceptions surrounding Mental Health.

It may be that the issue frightens you. It may be that it resonates within you for personal reasons.

It may be Time to Talk.

Visit Time to Change and find out how you can be the difference.
