Time To Talk Day: Disabled people also need to talk about mental health

Time to Talk Day 01/02/24 logo

Today is Time to Talk Day and we have collaborated with Crip Life™ to jointly raise awareness of the mental health needs of disabled people.

There can be many barriers for disabled people talking about their feelings including inaccessible therapy services, other people not understanding how it feels to be disabled and fearing upsetting the people we rely on for support if we say something that they don’t like.

Today on Time to Talk Day, Spokz People wants to encourage the disabled community to talk more about mental health and wellbeing.

Mel Halacre, Clinical Director of Spokz People, has written this guest blog for CripLife™: Disabled People Also Need to Talk About Mental Health
