We got behind Time to Talk Day, which took place on Thursday 1 February, with a series of activities which aimed to inspire people to talk about mental health.

We asked people to pledge their support for the day by taking a photo holding our pledge card and sharing it with us on social media using @BDCFT#BDCTTimetoTalk.

We hoped by getting as many people sharing online as possible it encouraged people to talk about how they were feeling, whether they were in a supermarket, cafe, at the local barbers, with their local cabbie or on top of a mountain.

Whatever the hour, every conversation, every text, every share means more people are reached and more lives are changed.  Thank you to everyone who found time to talk, share and pledge their support.

Time to Talk is the national campaign led by Time to Change which aims to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness by getting people to talk openly about issues that can affect us all.
