It’s Time to Talk about young people’s mental health at a ‘get 2gether' in Gloucester.

The event is being organised by the Governors of 2gether NHS Foundation Trust and will take place on national Time to Talk Day, which is Thursday 4 February. Gloucestershire College’s Gloucester Campus, on Llanthony Road, will be hosting the event, which runs from 5pm to 7.30pm.

Visitors will be able to find out more about the services provided locally by 2gether NHS Foundation Trust and its partner agencies, and information about how to access them.

As well as being able to ask questions about the Trust’s work, there will be an opportunity to make suggestions about how the Trust can support the mental health and well-being of young people in the local area. People can also become members of the Trust at the event.

Gillian Hayes, one of 2gether’s Public Governors for Gloucester, said: "This event provides an opportunity for people to find out more about how we work with young people in our local area to support their mental health needs and their well-being.

"It is a great opportunity to find out more about the work of the Trust, and about the services we provide, alongside the other agencies we work with.

"The aim of Time to Talk Day is to get as many people as possible talking about mental health and break the silence that often surrounds this issue."

Gillian’s fellow Governor, Paul Toleman, said: "We want to raise awareness of young people’s mental health and well-being, so we urge people to attend our event and take the time to talk about this important issue."

Sue Steed, Vice Principal at Gloucestershire College, said: "The College is proud to support raising awareness of mental health issues which affect so many young people in today’s society."
