#TimetoTalk Day: 10 motivational illustrations to inspire your discussions on mental health

One in four people have suffered some form of mental health problem yet few talk about it even with friends and this can cause sufferers to feel extremely isolated and often exacerbate the issue.

Time to Talk Day takes place on the first Thursday in February to encourage the Britons to talk about mental health.

The day is set up by the Time to Change charity which aims to help people discuss their problems and break down the stigma attached to mental health.

With that in mind, we gathered some poignant illustrations to inspire you to start a discussion on mental well-being – it could be an invaluable talk for yourself or for a friend.

1. Remember mental illness is real

2. As real as any other ailment

3. And shouldn’t be ignored

4. Always ask – not everyone will say they’re okay

5. A cup of tea and a chat could make all the difference

6. Remember there’s always help

7. And there’s nothing you can’t talk about

8. Ignore those who stigmatise medication

9. Remember the small victories

10. And be a warrior – not a worrier
