This November, Time to Change launch their ‘Ask Twice’ campaign on 19 November on International Men’s Day, to help tackle the mental health stigma.
Now, more than ever, we know everyone’s mental health is under pressure. This November, by encouraging everyone to work together to tackle mental health sigma and discrimination by getting people to ask not just once, but to ‘Ask twice’.
Last year Time to Change’s Ask Twice messaging encouraged over 600,000 men to ask their mates twice, with a further 2.27 million saying it made them think about stepping in for a mate.
We know that men find it particularly hard to reach out and ask for help or share what is troubling them.
As we face another lockdown, we need to remember our friends, relatives, neighbours and colleagues, so reach out to someone you know and ask if they’re ok, not just once, but twice.
Some people may find it difficulty to open up and be honest to close friends and family, this is where counselling can help, talking to someone outside of a situation can offer a different perspective without judgement.
At the Foundation we are offering online and phone counselling, giving clients the flexibility to talk from home or a safe space.
