ABF supports Time to Talk Day 2023

Updated: Jul 10, 2023

This years’ Time to Talk Day took place on Thursday, February 2, with the aim to create supportive communities by encouraging conversations with family, friends, or colleagues about mental health, and staff from Wrexham mental health and wellbeing charity Advance Brighter Futures (ABF) invited people to come along and have a chat with them about all things mental health.

Zoe Whitehead, Business Development Officer at ABF, said: “We’re fully supportive of Time to Talk Day and we want people to know that it’s always ok to talk about mental health. A small conversation can often have a big impact on you and the people around you, but we realise people can sometimes struggle to take the initiative to share how they’re feeling.”

The event was held at the brand-new Wellbeing Hub, located in Wrexham Town Centre, with people being encouraged to come along and make space in their day for a conversation about mental health. Hot drinks and cupcakes were offered to help celebrate the day.

Zoe says: “A huge thank you to Stacey and her team at the Wellbeing Hub for a lovely afternoon. We always look forward to events that help us reach the community and the opportunity to chat to people about mental health.”


Time to Talk day also marked the launch of Advance Brighter Futures’ ‘Your Voice Matters’ survey, which aims to help the charity find out more about how the rising cost of living is impacting on the local community and people’s mental wellbeing.

Zoe says: “We know that the rising cost of living is having a significant impact and affecting many people across North Wales. At Advance Brighter Futures, we care about your mental wellbeing. We want to understand more about how the rising cost of living is affecting you, your mental wellbeing, and your day-to-day life. The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and we truly value your feedback. By completing the survey, you will be helping us to understand the challenges that our community face, and how we can better support the people within our communities.”
