#BlurtChats We Asked: Why do you think there’s still such a taboo about taking medication for mental ill health?

On the 2nd Tuesday, of every month, we’re live on Twitter at 8pm (GMT) to facilitate a conversation about a topic related to mental health. Here’s a round-up of our Twitter Chat:  Why do you think there’s still such a taboo about taking medication for mental ill health?

On the 2nd Tuesday, of every month, we’ll be live on Twitter at 8pm (GMT) to facilitate a conversation about a topic related to mental health.

The best bit about a Twitter Chat, is that anyone with a Twitter profile can join in the conversation. And because it’s live, the hope is that it’ll be a buoyant hour which will be jam-packed with discussion, connection, advice-sharing and empathy.

At 8pm on the day of the Twitter Chat, we’ll tweet a welcome message to signal the beginning of the chat and post our topic question to get things going. We’ll use the hashtag #BlurtChats in all our tweets and it would be really helpful if you do the same in your replies – so that we can keep tabs on the conversation and reply to/re-tweet as many as possible.

If you don’t feel comfortable in taking part, we completely understand – please don’t beat yourself up about it, these things aren’t for everyone – we hope though that it might still be an insightful conversation to listen in on.
