Time to Talk Day - Thursday 7th February on Stray FM

Stray FM is supporting Time to Talk Day on Thursday 7th February, by remembering popular North Yorkshire Police Officer Mick Atkinson.

Thursday 7th February is #TimeToTalkDay - where we're encouraged to talk about Mental Health.

Stray FM is supporting this cause all day, and will be remembering popular police officer PC Mick Atkinson, who was found dead at his home by his partner Kelly Taylor in October 2018.

Listen at 8:10am Thursday morning to hear our extended interview with Kellie as we look to prevent other families from experiencing the same tragic loss.

Time to Talk Day is organised by Mental Health social movement Time to Change.

They say:

Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet people are still afraid to talk about it. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to talk about mental health.

Having conversations about mental health helps break down stereotypes, improve relationships, aid recovery and take the stigma out of something that affects us all. There are lots of different ways to have a conversation about mental health. And you don’t have to be an expert to talk.

However you do it, make sure you have a conversation about mental health this Time to Talk Day.

You can find out more and download free resources on the Time to Talk Day web page.
