Sarah Hollebon took part in the mental health awareness day Time To Talk Day on Thursday 3 Feb 2022. A day where talking with someone about mental health is encouraged.
It shouldn’t have to be hard talking about mental health, but let’s face it, it is.
Due to the stigma, preconceived judgements, discrimination, and throw away comments that STILL take place to this day on mental ill health, it becomes debilitating and certainly does not make you want to open up.
It can be really hard to make that initial step and open up to someone you trust about how you are really feeling inside. So we tend to carry it all ourselves, but it becomes heavy, and low, and dark.
We never really know the full extent of what someone is going through. If we can create that safe and open space for someone to share about what’s really going on for them, how they are really feeling, it can be life changing.
So go on, start that conversation today! It may have more of an impact than you will ever know. It may even save a life.
A massive thank you to everyone who has supported and contributed to this mental health video campaign for Time to Talk Day.
Together, we can make positive change on mental ill health ❤️
