Today, the 6th of February, has been my favourite day this year. I’m fully aware that there are still 328 days to go in 2014 but something pretty spectacular would have to happen to beat this one. I saw Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and the news swarmed with people talking about mental health and as far as I’m concerned, the more people there are talking, the less there are not talking. Every single time I saw somebody post something about mental health, I smiled. So basically, I’ve been smiling all day!
Time to Change have done a fantastic job at spreading the word about mental health and today everybody that works within this campaign should be proud because people have certainly been talking! Such a miserable topic has been made into something that people can just chat about, something that people aren’t afraid to chat about. I’ve actually been surprised that I’ve spent the day talking about mental health problems yet I’m feeling on top of the world right now, ironic eh?
I’ve spent the day ‘spamming’ everybody’s Facebook news feed today so I may take a break from it all for a few days but that doesn’t mean the conversations should stop at midnight. Today, many of us decided it was Time to Talk so tomorrow maybe we should all decide to keep talking.
If you still haven’t had your daily dose of Time to Change then check out their live blog to see just how much has been happening:
So many amazing things have been happening today and I think that everybody involved should give themselves a pat on the back because it’s not easy to talk about mental health problems, it should never be underestimated how difficult it is!
Time to Change, you’ve done fantastically. *Virtual High Five*. Same again next year?
