Time to Talk Day is on 1 February 2024 and is run by Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, in partnership with the Co-op. The day is all about having more conversations about your mental health between friends, families and communities. Talking about mental health isn't easy but talking about how you’re feeling reduces the stigma that surrounds mental health. It also helps to create a supportive environment where we can talk about mental health and whether we need to seek help. The Time to Talk campaign is encouraging people to get the conversation about mental health going. 

Receiving a lymphoma diagnosis and adjusting to life with lymphoma can bring up a variety of emotions for you and those around you. There’s no ‘right’ way to feel after getting a diagnosis and however you feel is normal. It’s important to allow yourself the time and space to feel your emotions and not ignore them. Ignoring them can make them harder to cope with. This is when having a conversation with someone about how you’re feeling can be really helpful.

You might feel comfortable opening up to your close friends and family, or you might prefer to talk to a medical professional, such as your clinical nurse specialist (CNS) or GP. We are also here to support you and you can speak to a member of our Helpline Team about any aspect of lymphoma, including about how you’re feeling.

You can find out more about the Time to Talk Day on the campaign’s website.
