Iain Gray MSP is supporting Time to Talk Day on Thursday 4th February, the annual day when everyone across the UK is encouraged to have a conversation on mental health.
Time to Talk day is running across the whole of the UK and Ireland and is led here in Scotland by mental health campaign group See Me.
The day is a chance for all of us to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives – and this year the theme is The Power of Small.
Speaking about his support for the day, Iain Gray MSP said:
“The pandemic and lockdown have undoubtedly brought additional stress and strain for many people. It means that talking about mental health is more important than ever before.
“But the message from Time to Talk day is that small gestures can make a big difference, even when we have to be socially distanced.
“I’m pleased to support the day on 4 February and encourage East Lothian residents to consider the Power of Small and what they can do to talk, to listen and to help change lives.”
As part of the activities for Time to Talk Day this year, See Me is also encouraging the public to get involved in a big game of digital mental health bingo.
