ABOUT US

OUR WORK

Our Vision is for PROJECT:TALK become a nationally recognised, economically sustainable and highly effective solution for organisations who wish to support mental fitness, including the mental health and wellbeing, of their community. 

 

From schools, to University students, from businesses to the general public, we seek to harness the power of individuals to draw communities together to revitalise mental health, inspire change and better support each other. 

Mental Fitness is about togetherness. Only then can we thrive.

We center our work around four central principals. A community must be inspired, empowered and supported to nurture each one of these in order to truly reap the benefits of mental fitness:

AWARE

Individuals must be aware of their own minds and of the thoughts, feelings and emotions of those around them. This requires education, knowledge and understanding alongside open communication and a lack of stigma.

ENABLED

Communities must be highly driven with the desire, hope and permission to have a lasting impact. This gives individuals a sense of purpose – you really can make a difference. Communities require the means to train and improve their mental fitness, allowing individuals within to better seize opportunities presented to them whilst being equipped with the resources, language and confidence to navigate challenges. 

PROACTIVE

We must foster a culture of early recognition when we are becoming overwhelmed and early action in the case of seeking support. Why wait until distress sets in to seek support? We aim to provide them with the means to navigate what they are going through. It must be the cultural norm within a community to come together, speak up and seek support from others.

RESOURCED

A key resource in the community is the support network we have around us. There must be compassionate, supportive and effective communication between members of the community. It is rarely necessary to rely solely on medical and professional support systems. On top of this, individuals must have the means to lead well balanced lives whilst being adaptive to challenging situations using personal skills and tools to understand and manage thoughts, feelings and emotions. At the time when intervention is required, this must be effective and accessible to all.

JULIA

 

TOOLS TO:TALK Medical Curriculum Manager

I believe in the amazing power of conversation, and how it can be used to change the way we view mental health, and to care for ourselves and each other. We should all be able to feel safe and comfortable being ourselves, talking about struggles, and receiving help. I’m in this to help get those conversations going.

CHLOË

 

Operations and Outreach Manager

I am so passionate about inclusion. I believe seizing opportunity comes easier to some than others; no matter who you are, I feel everyone should experience possibility equally. Mental fitness holds a huge amount of responsibility in our achievements, and PROJECT:TALK is the perfect platform to engage with this.

LUCY

 

Social Media & Marketing Manager

I got involved with PROJECT:TALK as I’m passionate about people dropping the stigma surrounding mental health and believe we all should work on our mental fitness just as we would our physical fitness. It is so important we feel empowered to talk about our bad days as well as our good ones, and I believe the work we are doing can really make an impact in giving people the skills to have these conversations.

XAV

 

Editor & Media Manager

Paradoxically, the age of the internet has caused many of us to be less connected than ever before. Image is everything, and it’s easier than ever to forget that all of us have highs and lows, all of us get lonely, and – most importantly – all of us have mental health. Through PROJECT:TALK, I hope that we all can move away from chat, and get one step closer to conversation.
