Time to Talk Day
The Wellbeing Team introduces the online peer support community, Togetherall
Togetherall: People helping people
2 February was Time to Talk Day. Run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness the day is designed for friends, families, communities and workplaces to come together to talk, listen and change lives. The day was all about creating supportive communities by having conversations about mental health, which helps support ourselves and others and has the power to change lives.
With this in mind, the Wellbeing Team would like to highlight Togetherall, an online peer support community open for all staff and students of the University to access. Togetherall provides an anonymous safe space for you to share challenges and achievements and connect with those who understand what you are going through. You can access groups such as ‘work life balance’ and ‘parents and caregivers’ to access support around topics that are most relevant to you. The community is managed 24/7 by clinical professionals so you can be assured this is a safe space.
You can also access a wide range of courses such as ‘managing stress and worry’ and improve your sleep to help understand and manage the challenges you may be experiencing.
Togetherall is completely free and you can register now using your work email address at www.togetherall.com/.
