Staff and Students at RuTC start the conversation for Time to Talk Day

Monday 6 February 2017

On Thursday 2nd February, staff and students at Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) started the conversation about mental health for Time to Talk Day.

Time to Talk Day is a national initiative from Time to Change that aims to encourage everyoneRuTC TimetoTalkDay1 700 to take part in activities to support those with mental health problems. Suggested activities range from making a cup of tea to going for a walk with someone to find out how they are.

Narinder Dosanjh, ALS Mental Health Tutor for RuTC, led the campaign for the college on the day with an information stand outside the canteen. The aim of the stand was to catch the attention of staff and students and invite them to talk about mental health using friendly techniques found on the Time to Talk website. Narinder commented that the stand was aimed at “everybody and anybody” and it is important “to break down the barriers and stigma” surrounding mental health.
