Time to Change Social Contact Free Training Workshop
Friday, 7 April 2017 from 13:00 to 16:00 (BST)
At Time to Change, we define Social Contact as “Conversations that take place between people who have lived experience of mental health problems and those who may not”.
Time to change is a national campaign whose aim is to eliminate the stigma around mental health problems. Knowing how to start and end conversations around mental health can be a little scary.
We are offering a free 3 hour training course to learn how to safely and effectively talk to people about mental health.
