Let’s Keep Talking is a mental health campaign launched in January 2021 to encourage people to stay connected with family and friends, to reach out to others who may be isolated or struggling at the moment and to seek help when needed.
We know that the coronavirus pandemic has affected people’s mental health with increased mental distress: anxiety, depression and stress. We want to make sure that, as the pandemic continues, people have conversations about how they are feeling, both with trusted friends and family, colleagues and professionals where necessary.
The campaign messages aim to provide reassurance and signpost to further information on where to find support and resources. The campaign materials have been developed in consultation with people from the target groups.
The call to action directs people to helplines and organisations that can support with mental health and to the www.kindtoyourmind.org website for more information.
Kind to Your Mind provides people with a wide range of mental health & wellbeing resources, podcasts by mental health professionals and those who are experts through lived experience and information on how to find support.
The campaign is brought to you by Cheshire & Merseyside local authorities and NHS services.
