Thursday 4 February 2021 is time to talk day in the mental health calendar.
Whilst SOS believes every day should be a day for talking and listening, it’s great to have a day which focuses us all on the benefits of communication.
670% – the increase in our incoming calls asking for support between November and December 2020. That’s a lot of people who realise the benefits to talking and sharing. We are so proud they chose SOS to trust in – thank you all.
Who hasn’t felt, at some point in their life, a huge sense of relief and release when they’ve shared a problem with someone else? It can help reduce feelings of anxiety and stress and help us feel less isolated. Huge positives!
So on Time To Talk Day, and everyday, when someone asks ‘How are you?’ tell them how you really feel.
Because you starting your conversation, might help others to start theirs too.
So let’s all get talking on 4 February and see and feel the difference it can make. SOS will be posting social media clips throughout the day, sending positive messages and encouraging everyone to talk … talk …. talk !
For anyone who needs support, please call SOS on 0300 1020 505 between 8am and midnight, 7 days a week.
Our team of friendly volunteers will listen and support in complete confidence.
