Are you ready to start the conversation?

Published on

It is funny how easy it is to forget what you have done.  

While talking to colleagues the other day about how organisations might "kick off" a campaign around raising awareness and creating conversations about mental health, we thought how helpful it would be to have a short film to send around the organisation which, in a gentle and non threatening way lifted the lid, opened the door, or any other metaphor you want to insert, on the subject.  

So off I went to have a think about putting something together.  And then I remembered this - Are you ready to start the conversation? - something we put together a couple of years ago with our friends at BrightCarbon.  The message is the same today as it was then - there has been much progress in the meantime and there are still many conversations that need starting.
