Today (3rd February) ‘Time to Talk day’.
Listen to Radio Glamorgan at Midday (Repeated at 10pm, and available as a podcast too) to hear Julie Kissick, chat to three people who have all had different experiences with mental health, but they are all advocates for speaking up and keeping the channels of communication open.
Anwen Evans explains what it was like dealing with mental health as a teenager, Rhodri Jones who is a mind fitness and performance coach works with people on understanding how they tick and Kev Johns talks about finding your voice and someone to talk to.
The Time to Change Wales campaign is delivered by a partnership of two leading Welsh mental health charities.
- Mind Cymru is Mind’s force for change in Wales. Informed in everything they do by people with direct experience of emotional distress they campaign vigorously to create a society that promotes good mental health and that challenges mental health stigma.
- Hafal (meaning ‘equal’) is the principal organisation in Wales working with individuals recovering from serious mental illness and their families. They are managed by the people they support – individuals with serious mental illness and their carers.
