We’re not just about one big night of telly here at Comic Relief. Oh no. We’re committed to tackling the big issues of our time all year round. Recently, we headed down to Westfield London with Roman Kemp to take on this important question.
We were there to try and understand how people who are living their everyday lives can make time to talk about their mental health.
People shared honestly about how they try different things. Some surround themselves with people who are kind and compassionate and know what it’s like to go through the same stuff they do. Some people prefer to talk it all through with their mum. And others invite friends over for dinner to make sure they know what’s going on in their world.
We had two incredible illustrators with us on the day who created a visual story of all the answers. That was then displayed for everyone to see (and considering we were at Westfield that is quite a lot of people). We also threw the question out to Twitter, which gathered lots of great responses that were incorporated too.
It’s not an easy subject. But it’s one of the most important ones to talk about. So, how do you make time to talk about mental health?
