Today is Time to Talk Day when friends, families, communities, and workplaces come together to talk, listen and change lives.
The entire B7s team are passionate advocates for opening up and talking about mental health, and we encourage all of our teams and party-goers, to look out for each other, and be ready to chat.
We’ve outlined the benefits of playing team sports before, but it’s worth reiterating that having a good group of mates with common goals and interests is extremely beneficial when you need someone to turn to.
The same goes for those friends that you choose to spend your spare time with. Social isolation has been attributed as a major driver in the worsening of mental health during the pandemic, so now is the time to take advantage of our new found freedom and rediscover what it’s like to share our concerns with our friends, face-to-face.
There is no 'one-size-fit-all' approach to talking about mental health, but Mind have pulled together a very useful and informative guise to help you get started. Check it out here.
Let's get talking!
