On Thursday 02nd February, The Engineering College celebrated ‘Time to Talk’ day, raising awareness of some common Mental Health issues.
One in four of us will experience a mental health problem every year.
But too many people with mental health problems are made to feel worthless or isolated. The way you act towards someone with a mental illness can change their life: by opening up to mental health you can make a real difference.
This Thursday, we’re ‘painting’ the building green with posters and info-graphics to raise awareness of these problems and the stigma behind Mental Health! Mental Health covers problems like anxiety, bipolar, depression, OCD, schizophrenia and eating disorders.
Support is available via the Time to Change website.
