World Mental Health Day 2009
For 2009, we launched our first ever Tea and Talk socialising and fundraising event.
Everyone knows how beneficial a good cup of tea and a chat can be. Just sharing your cares and hopes can be great for your own mental health and wellbeing.
In 2009, we asked people to get together with supportive friends or collegues and share a nice hot cuppa, and talk about mental health issues. That year, over 6000 people took part in our Tea and Talk event raising vital funds to fight the suffering caused by mental illness.
We then collected personal stories to help inspire other people to take part in Tea and Talk in the future.
Tea and Talk remains an important annual event for us.
