Britain Get Talking

Connecting with others is one of the key ways that we can all protect our mental wellbeing. That’s why ITV and STV have created their landmark mental health initiative, Britain Get Talking, in partnership with charities Mind, YoungMinds and SAMH (Scottish Action for Mental Health)

Whether it’s reaching out to someone for a chat or opening up about something that’s worrying you, we’re asking the nation to take the time to get talking!
