Tea & Talk
Tea & Talk is our national fundraising event which takes place on or around World Mental Health Day - 10 October each year.
All you have to do is get together a group of friends, family or colleagues, put the kettle on and invite them to make a donation to the Mental Health Foundation - it’s as simple as that! Don't feel stuck if October is no good for you though - you can hold Tea & Talks at any time of year.
