Home Talk, Home Office
Home Talk is a mental health support group operated by volunteers. Colleagues struggling with their mental health are encouraged to drop in and talk about how they are coping in a group that is non-judgemental, confidential and supportive. Participants are encouraged to talk about both positives and negatives, and are connected with others with similar experiences. Due to the pandemic, Home Talk is now held virtually which has widened its reach, allowed more colleagues to join, and is successfully tackling stigma as well as the isolation that the pandemic is causing. Home Talk has recently expanded to include a dedicated women's group as well.
