Time to Talk Day

Time to Talk Day is a global holiday dedicated to the eradication of psychological problems through communication. The ability to communicate with other people is not only a useful skill, but also the basis of a healthy psyche. There are times when everything boils inside, thoughts depress. Communication with a loved one allows you to get rid of negativity, share your feelings and relax. The holiday is celebrated annually on February 6th.


Time to Talk Day was established in 2014. The organization “Time to Talk” came up with a corresponding initiative. This day was meant to be a time of numerous talks about mental health. People could talk to each other, as well as turn to a psychologist, discussing problems with a specialist.

The creation of the holiday, of course, was facilitated by the formation of the concept of mental health in society. In the Victorian era, many women were considered unhealthy, although the reasons for the change in behavior were quite understandable (for example, postpartum depression). They were recognized as mentally ill and forced to undergo treatment. In the late 19th century, people’s awareness of the psyche as a whole remained low. Many people were hidden in psychiatric hospitals, but there they often did not receive proper help.

Significant development in the field of mental health began in the middle of the 20th century. A great contribution was made by the neurologist Sigmund Freud, who determined the causes that could drive a person to insanity. He created many theories, exploring the behavior of people. His scientific works made it possible to better understand the nature of the human psyche, leading in the future to the creation of effective methods of treatment.

In the modern world, psychology is a fairly developed science. Special seminars and closed clubs are organized all over the world, where you can share your problems with people, find a solution through conversations.
