Image promoting now were talking campaign. A suicide prevention campaign - talk to someone on 08081969127

Launched in 2018 by Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care Trust the Now We're Talking campaign set out to reduce stigma and encourage more local people to access the Healthy Minds Service to get the support if and when they need it!

Having conversations about mental health helps break down stereotypes, improves relationships, aids recovery and take the sigma out of something that affects us all.

There are lots of different ways to have the conversation about mental health and you don't have to be an expert to talk.  Promotion of mental health awareness has many forms, and we are all about thinking outside the box! Mental Health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it. Having conversations about mental health helps break down stereotypes, improves relationships, aid recovery and take the sigma out of something that affects us all.

If you would like further information about the Now We’re Talking campaign and how you could get involved please contact alice.linley@nhs.net

Talk

Someone you know will have a mental health problem right now – a family member, your friend, your workmate. He or she just might not know how to tell you.

Being open to mental health can break down any stigma surrounding it. You don’t have to be an expert to talk and to listen, and often it’s the little things that make a big difference.
