Our staff and trainees had a great day in the Luton Mall where we got the community of Luton talking on Time to Talk Day 2018.
“Any place is the right place to talk about mental health”, whether you are at home, work or shopping”.
We encouraged many people to stop, pick up a leaflet and chat about mental health and show that talking about this once-taboo issue doesn’t need to be difficult. For those looking to listen and support others in counselling as a career this year, we were able to share details of our counselling training courses for 2018 and forthcoming Open Day on 3 March in St Albans, which is free to attend.
Celebrating it’s 10th year, the national campaign run by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness has been continuously helping to improve the attitudes and behaviours of millions towards mental health.
Social contact is proven to have the most impact on changing attitudes and behaviour towards people with mental health problems. Time to Talk Day is a chance for all of us to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives.
The Foundation is passionate about promoting positive mental health and has provided counselling and counselling training for the better mental health of our communities in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire for over forty years.
