Time to Talk Day 2019
Thursday 7 February is Time to Talk Day – a day when everyone is encouraged to have a conversation about mental health.
We’re proud of the amazing team of people who help make our counselling service happen – challenging the mental health stigma in our communities. There are lots of different ways to talk about mental health. However you choose to have your conversation, the Foundation understand talking breaks down barriers. That’s why we support #TimetoTalk day.
For many of us the workplace is where we spend most of our time. It is vital that in any workplace everyone should be able to feel they can be open about their mental health, and ask for support if they need it.
We recognise the importance of having our own Employee Assistance Support (EAP) service for staff, where they can access confidential help for; stress and anxiety, counselling, family issues, work advice, childcare support, financial wellbeing, relationship advice, legal advice, medical information, gambling issues, alcohol & drug issues and consumer issues.
Counselling for all Employees:
If you’re looking of ways to support your staff, we can offer:-
- Employee Counselling Programme for local organisations in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire a service which can help reduce workplace stress and improve wellbeing through the provision of short term counselling for staff.
- You can also get your own room full of people together for a workshop or various Webinars on mental health topics.

How are you?
Many of us will answer ‘fine’, even when we’re not. Too often, mental health problems are treated as a taboo subject – something not to be talked about, especially at work. However, mental health affects us all and we should feel able to talk about it. There are lots of different ways to have a conversation about mental health. And you don’t have to be an expert to talk.
