World Mental Health Day is on Thursday 10th October and Time to Change is encouraging everyone to Ask Twice.
When we hear “How are you?”, the expected response is “Fine, thanks”.
But the truth is, sometimes we say we’re fine when we’re not. By asking twice, you can find out how your friends, family and colleagues really are.
Asking ‘how are you?’ twice shows that you care and want to hear an honest answer. If a friend, family member or colleague is acting differently, ask twice to find out how they really are.
Help shape the future
If you have experience of a mental health problem, you can share your experiences of getting support in Mind’s Big Mental Health Survey. Whether you got support through a GP, nurse or voluntary organisation – or if you’ve tried to access services but haven’t been able to – they want to know.
