"`Hey, how are you doing?` Time to Talk Day is a reminder to open up about mental health and the magic that happens when we just talk. A recent survey by YoungMinds shows that 67% of young people want mental health support without going to their GP but 53% don`t know where else to turn. That`s where us adults come in. It`s time to show how simple it is to have a chat when someone`s struggling. We need to be advocates for talking openly about mental health. Let`s show that it`s okay to talk and listen without judgment. Our openness can make a world of difference, breaking down walls and encouraging those who need help to speak up. Taking a cue from psychologist Carl Jung, our own struggles give us a special kind of empathy and patience. Whether we`re healers or not, our experiences make us better listeners and supporters. It`s all about being aware of our own stories, and when we share, it helps others heal too. For real conversations about mental health, we`ve got to know ourselves. Facing our own pain and challenges makes us more understanding and compassionate. By embracing our vulnerabilities, we create a space where everyone`s struggles are met with empathy and support. Let`s use Time to Talk Day to get real about mental health. The YoungMinds survey shows there`s work to be done, especially for young people. By being open and chatting, we can help create a world where mental health talk isn`t just accepted – it`s celebrated. Embrace the power of conversation, rooted in self-awareness, and let`s make the world a more understanding and caring place." - By Charly Dale, Head of HealthPictured is Rhona, our longest serving member of staff who retired this week! Congratulations and thank you for making time to talk to so many young people over the years - giving them invaluable advice, support and guidance 💙

There’s been a huge increase in young people, like Ben, becoming homelessness in the last year. 136,000 = 1 young person every 4 minutes. So we went on @skynews News with Lily from @centrepointuk today campaigning for a national strategy to end youth homelessness. And urging everyone to sign our petition to get the Government to create a #PlanForThe136kLink in bio to sign to end youth homelessness!#SignForThe136k #EndYouthHomelessness
