Time to Talk Day - Conversation Saves Lives

Carrick Mind  holds a Pop Up Café in Falmouth to support Time to Talk Day

‘Conversations Change Lives’

 

Carrick Mind will be holding an event on Thursday 2nd February as part of a nation-wide push to get people talking more openly about mental heath for one day.  Time to Talk Day is organised by Time to Change, the campaign to change how we all think and act about mental health problems, led by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness. 

 

Time to Talk Day aims to get as many people as possible across England talking about mental health. Since it’s launch in 2014, it has sparked millions of converations in schools, homes, workplaces, in the media and online, and attracted support from celebrities such as Freddie Flintoff, Stephen Fry and Frankie Bridge. Time to Talk Day 2017 aims to get the nation talking about mental health for 24 hours on the 2nd Febraury. 

 

Carrick Mind in Falmouth will join hundreds of other organisations, schools and members of the public, who will all be having conversations about mental health on Time to Talk Day. Activity planned for the day by Carrick Mind will include a Pop Up Café at the King Charles Parish Church Café between 10.00am and 1.00pm. Come along and have a cup of tea or coffee, a cake and chat. Information, advice and support will be available. 

 

1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year, but many of us are too afraid to talk about it. Starting a conversation about mental health might seem daunting but simply sending a text, checking in on a friend or sharing something on social media can break the ice. More tips can be found at http://www.time-to-change.org.uk/timetotalkday

 

Jon Gladstone, Chief Executive for Carrick Mind said: “We are taking part in Time to Talk Day because mental health is a topic that we should all feel able to talk about. Having these all important conversations can make a big difference to many people. The more we talk, the more lives we can change.” 

 

Sue Baker, Director of Time to Change, said: “Mental health problems are common and can affect any one of us, yet too often people are afraid to talk openly about mental health.  for fear of being judged. Time to Talk Day is a chance for everyone to open up about mental health - to talk, to listen, to change lives. We want to get the nation talking round the clock, whatever the time, whatever the place, wherever you are - it’s easy to take part and make a change.”

X Factor Auditions at The Poly

THE X FACTOR IS BACK AND IS COMING TO FALMOUTH


The UK’s favourite singing show, The X Factor, is back and on the lookout for the next big breakout music stars as they travel the length and breadth of the country on the 2017 audition tour. 

The team will be searching high and low, bringing the auditions directly to you in their hunt for singing sensations. So if you think you could be the next Matt Terry, Louisa Johnson, One Direction, Little Mix or Olly Murs, or know someone who you think could be, now is the time to come along and showcase your vocal talent.

The X Factor team will be at The Poly in Falmouth on 5th February 2017 this year, so if you think you’ve got the talent to impress and entertain, now is the time to show us what you’ve got.  Successful acts will then be in with a chance of securing a place at one of the judges’ auditions in 2017.

Acts are advised to turn up early to be sure to grab a slot as the Mobile Auditions are on a first come, first served basis.

All any budding hopefuls need to do is turn up on the date and time specified.  If they impress The X Factor team with their vocals, they will then be in with a chance of auditioning in front of the X Factor judges, when the judges’ auditions take place in summer. You will need to be 16 and over (please bring a parent or guardian and some valid ID if you are under 18)

The hit show has uncovered some outstanding talent across the years. To date, One Direction have sold more than 70 million records worldwide, Olly Murs released four multi-platinum albums with his fifth 24 Hours being  recently certified platinum, while Little Mix’s fourth album Glory Days is now the longest reigning No.1 in the UK since the Spice Girls' debut album Spice. In 2016, three of the four British lead acts to chart at No.1 in the UK singles chart were discovered by The X Factor – Zayn, James Arthur and Little Mix. Last year’s winner Matt Terry is currently working on his debut album, after his charity winner’s single When Christmas Come Around debuted at No. 3 in the Official UK Charts.

The X Factor will return to ITV later this year. Fans of the show can follow all the action via @TheXFactor on Twitter and Instagram and on Facebook.com/TheXFactor
