Prince Harry to Visit London Ambulance Service for Heads Together in Support of Time to Talk Day 

Thursday 2nd February, 2017

As part of the Heads Together campaign, Prince Harry will visit the London Ambulance Service to help kick off this year’s Time to Talk Day, the annual awareness day run by Time to Change aimed at getting the nation talking about mental health.

The theme of this year’s Time to Talk Day is ‘conversations change lives’. His Royal Highness will start the day at the London Ambulance Service, one of many workplaces around the UK committed to promoting mental wellbeing of the workforce and who run a Time to Talk Day event. During his visit Prince Harry will speak to members of staff at London Ambulance Service who will share how the support of their colleagues has helped them overcome difficult times in their lives. His Royal Highness will hear from 999 control room staff and ambulance crews about the importance of being able to talk to colleagues about how they’re feeling and what challenges they may be coping with.

Prince Harry will then join staff in the service’s own Time to Talk Day event where he will find out more about London Ambulance Service’s LINC network. LINC, which stands for ‘Listening, Informal, Non-judgemental, Confidential’, is a voluntary network of staff who can listen and support their peers. Other activities taking place organised by the London Ambulance Service and Time to Change on the day will provide staff members with advice on how to start conversations and look after their mental wellbeing.

Heads Together is a campaign to change the conversation on mental health, spearheaded by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, in partnership with eight leading mental health charities and three Founding Partners. Visit www.headstogether.org.uk for more information.

Time to Change is a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health problems. The campaign is run by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness and is funded by the Department of Health, Comic Relief and the Big Lottery Fund. Time to Change organises Time to Talk Day, now in its fourth year, to encourage people to be more open about mental health and ready to listen. On Time to Talk Day people are being encouraged to have conversations. Organisations, including schools, universities, workplaces and sports clubs, are being encouraged to hold events where everyone can take time out and talk about mental health. Everyone is being asked to then log their conversations on the Time to Change website.
