Thursday 3rd February is Time to Talk Day
Culloden Academy are fortunate to have partnered with Marina Finlayson, who the development officer for Mikeysline. Marina has been delivering virtual sessions to all S1-S6 pupils during PSE to educate our young people on the importance of talking about mental health and support.
Time to Talk is about creating supportive communities by having conversations with family, friends, or colleagues about mental health. We all have mental health. By talking about it, we can support ourselves and others.
Why time to talk day is important:
- 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year.
- We want everyone to feel comfortable talking about mental health – whenever they like.
- Talking about mental health reduces stigma and helps to create supportive communities where we can talk openly about mental health and feel empowered to seek help when we need it. Mikeysline is here for you every evening of the week and at the weekends.
By having conversations about mental health, we can support ourselves and others.
