Time to Talk Day with a Difference

How the STORM® Team embraced technology to hold a remote Time to Talk Day

With the aim of getting the nation talking about mental health, Time to Talk Day is one of the biggest days on the mental health calendar.

To help encourage more people than ever to talk about mental health, we promoted Time to Talk Day across our social media platforms and shared links to the fantastic resources available on the Time to Change website.

We also took some time to sit down as a team, have a cuppa and hold our very own Time To Talk session.

It was a chance for us all to chat more openly about mental health, to listen, to bond as a team. It was also a great way of getting together to welcome Emma to the STORM® Team.

But our Time to Talk day was one with a difference… we held it via a video call!

Our team operates remotely and despite the distance, we have created a supportive, collaborative and compassionate team.

When you’re not working in an office environment there is a risk you could miss out on opportunities for regular social interaction and connection with co-workers, and for some people working from home could cause feelings of isolation and disconnection. That’s why our team embraces technology to connect with each other at every opportunity. We also show compassion every day, by looking out for ourselves and for our colleagues.

By being more open about mental health, talking and listening, we believe that we can change lives and attitudes towards emotional health.

Whether you work in an office or remotely, why not try to catch up as a team more regularly or simply start by asking someone if they are okay today?
