Two heads are better than one when it comes to our mental health. So when someone you know is going through a difficult time, it’s OK to ask how they are – and if you feel like you need to speak to someone, it’s OK to say so.

It’s not always easy to talk about how you feel. But when someone is struggling, speaking to someone they trust can make a real difference.

Help us show that it’s #oktosay by:

  • Watching and sharing the films on our website  
  • Take a picture of you and the person you talk to and share using #oktosay and #headstogether so we can hear you!
