Another year, another time to #TimetoTalk day. This year I'd like to talk about mess and discomfort. One element of stigma is feeling like you carry a story and history that will never be understood and never be possible to integrate with the lives and stories of everyone else
If there's a #TimetoTalk day, there should also be a #timetolisten day. And listening means learning to live with stories that discomfort, stories that trail off, stories that ask questions you can't answer. Mental ill-health is a fucking mess to live with.
The experiences people share around mental ill-health will not conform to your wider narrative expectations. The job of making our stories make sense that we have who live through them is not the same job that a person listening has. #timetotalk isn't about you

It’s #TimeToTalk about people who are employed to use their experience of mental distress in MH charities ie. @MindCharity @TimetoChange. #LivedExperiencePractitioners #Peers experience discrimination, derogatory pay & active blocks to career progression #TimeToListen #TimeToAct
#TimeToTalk Many people don’t realise is that large generically run charities such as @MindCharity are given majority of funding, whilst orgs run by people who live with mental health conditions & grassroots groups are not funded. We are becoming extinct.…
The National Service User Network @NSUN is run by ppl with lived experience of Mental Health condition, but even that has lost its funding - the one org trying to support and keep our SU-led orgs together! #TimeToTalk Why can money go to @TimetoChange but not SU-led national org?
