Ashby Co-op is giving away game packs for Time to Talk Day on February 2.

Time to Talk is a UK wide campaign to get people talking to friends, family or colleagues about mental health. In England, Time to Talk Day is run by Rethink Mental Illness and Mind in partnership with the Co-op.

Co-op wants to encourage people to come together and connect through games.

The game packs include everything you need to help start a games event in the Ashby area.

The games can be enjoyed by everyone and the aim is to help kickstart conversations about mental health.

The free games packs include a Jenga game, a positivity card game, a games ideas booklet and a £5 Co-op gift voucher towards refreshments for a games event.

The packs also contain invitations and a pen.

To request a free Co-op games pack email [email protected] by midnight on Sunday (January 22) with your name and address.

Co-op is raising £8 million for MIND, SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) and Inspire to bring communities together to improve mental wellbeing.

One is four of us will have a mental health problem in any year.

By talking about mental health we can support ourselves and others.
