Time to Talk Derbyshire

Published on Thursday 27 January 2022

Mental health issues affect one in four people but it can still feel hard to open up and talk about how we’re feeling.


This year Derbyshire County Council is running Time to Talk Derbyshire from February 7th to March 4th.

The campaign aims to encourage everyone to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen and to help change lives.

Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Communities, Councillor Carol Hart said: “Mental health and wellbeing affects us all, and the pandemic has deeply impacted on the way that some people are feeling too.

“Sometimes just sharing how you are feeling can be the first step in helping someone to improve their mental wellbeing.

“You do not need to be a health care professional to have a conversation about mental health. Just listen, be supportive and be there.”

There’s some simple tips around starting a conversation about mental health:
•    show you're willing to listen and talk
•    listen but don't judge
•    step up and make the first move
•    be patient
•    se supportive
•    be yourself

What are you doing to start the conversation? Derbyshire County Council would like to hear from you about your experiences of talking about mental health and wellbeing.

You can email your story or ideas about how to start a conversation about mental health to asch.time2talk@derbyshire.gov.uk and we’ll share your tips on social media during the Time to Talk campaign.

You can also get ideas about how to start talking about mental health at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/timetotalk

There's lots of ways to help improve your emotional wellbeing.  Have you tried the Five Ways to Wellbeing? They're simple, everyday things to give your mood a little boost. Find out more at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/wellbeing
