Time to Talk Day 3rd February 2022
Time to Talk Day on Thursday 3rd February 2022: a day centred around creating supportive communities by having conversations with family, friends and colleagues about mental health.
We know that talking and listening about mental health has the power to change lives. Each conversation we have contributes to reducing mental health stigma, helping to create supportive communities where we can talk openly about mental health and feel empowered to seek help when we need it.
This Time to Talk Day we’re inviting our corporate partners to host a Tea and Talk event to encourage mental health conversations in the workplace. Pop the kettle on, grab a biscuit, get together with your colleagues and have a conversation about mental health. If you want to spread the love even further, why not host a bake sale and help us raise much needed funds to ensure no one in Norfolk and Waveney has to face a mental health problem alone.

Children’s Mental Health Week - 7th till 13th February 2022
Children's mental health charity Place2Be has set up Children's Mental Health Week 2022. Its aim is to highlight the importance of mental health within children and young people.
The years of 2020, and 2021 have been demanding and difficult for all of us. Worryingly however, there has been a significant deterioration of the mental health of our children. Among children of Primary School Age (5-10 years), 14.4% had a probable mental health disorder in 2020, an increase from 9.4% in 2017 (NHS, 2020).
Children's mental health is everyone's business and so we must ensure that no children or young person has to face a mental health problem alone. Norfolk and Waveney Mind's Youth service provides support for young people from 14 to 25.
We wanted to remind young people, adults and carers that we are here for you.
