It’s Time To Talk Day on February 4. We know that talking about mental health can feel awkward, but it doesn’t have to. And this year’s event might look a little different, but at times like this open conversations about mental health are more important than ever. So reach out to someone old, new, or in need this week.
But how do we stay connected at a time of disconnection?
Thanks to the following guests for participating:
Gary Butterfield, co-founder and executive director of Everyday Juice Limited.
