Talk to Me


1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. On World Mental Health Day, the film “Talk To Me” was released in cinemas to support the Time To Change campaign.

The film features Christopher Eccleston, Tom Goodman-Hill, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith and Niamh Cusack, who are among thirty writers, poets, actors and mental health ambassadors to have collaborated on an art-led piece by Steuart Padwick. All wrote and recorded deeply personal poetry about the importance of communication for mental health.

Two sculptural figures were installed in King’s Cross during the London Design Festival. The aim was to remind passers-by that the burdens many of us carry can be reduced through communication. Led by the award winning Director Dan Henshaw, we crafted a poetry-led narrative journey around the sculptures. With the graphic lines of cranes against the sky; the throngs of people pouring down Kings Boulevard – the chaos of the city provides a metaphor for mental health.

Time To Change is a growing movement of people changing how we think and act about mental health problems. The campaign is run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, and thousands more organisations have joined to make change happen.
