AN EVENT to get more people talking about their mental health is taking place at Golden Square Shopping Centre.

Warrington Time To Change Hub, in partnership with Golden Square, is supporting Time to Talk Day on Thursday, February 6 and encouraging as many people as possible to choose to talk about mental health.

The aim is to #GetWarringtonTalking.

Golden Square's new community space located near Debenhams, will host the event.

Time to Talk Day is organised by Time to Change, the campaign to change how we all think and act about mental health problems, led by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness.

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.”

One in four people will experience a mental health problem in any given year, but many 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 break the ice.
