The 2nd February was Take Time to Talk day - a national event run by Time to Change - a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health.
To mark the occasion in partnership with our Community Champions project we wanted to provide a space to talk about mental health and for organisations to discuss challenges and ideas they have surrounding the topic.
We did this by hosting a Wellbeing Networking event at the Latymer Community Church for local professionals in Kensington & Chelsea.
In our experience, local organisations often provide the time for their clients to talk, but rarely find time for themselves – so we wanted to give them the chance to take time to talk in our networking event with a difference!
The event aimed at promoting mindfulness, raising awareness about mental health issues, sharing experiences and networking with local organisations.
We hosted three tables with different mindfulness activities for organisations to take part in whilst networking with their peers; whether it be decorating biscuits, making a collage or potting plants.
“Such a different way of networking – really enjoyable!”
A huge thank you to everyone who took the time out to talk and made the event such a success!
