Changing Minds Kent joined the country to host a Time to Talk coffee morning. Time to talk day is all about bringing together the right ingredients to have a conversation about mental health. The morning focused on talking about mental health problems and breaking down those barriers. Some Thanet residents wrote specific feelings/statements about different mental health problems on our tablecloths provoking some interesting talking points.
We were also joined by One You Kent, who were carrying out health checks as people with severe mental illness die on average 15 to 20 years earlier than the general population, with higher prevalence of obesity, diabetes, stroke and heart failure.
Mental health affects one in four of us yet people are still afraid to talk about it. For people with mental health problems not being able to talk about it can be one of the worst parts of the illness. Too many people right now who are struggling with their mental health are made to feel isolated, worthless and ashamed. At Changing Minds Kent we continue to encourage people to talk about mental health problems and we celebrate people’s individualities.
