"Social media can be an fantastic, connective place but a "like", or even hundreds of "likes", can't replace conversation", she said.

Last year Ford partnered with *Time to Change, producing a national awareness film promoting the front seat of a vehicle as a safe space to talk after research, conducted by Ford, found that over two-thirds (67 per cent) of people said they were more comfortable talking about issues when in a vehicle. "Social media can be an fantastic, connective place but a "like", or even hundreds of "likes", can't replace conversation". Having these all important conversations can make a big difference to many people. "To literally have a shoulder to cry on is one of the best gifts I've received from my friends".

Like many organisations across the UK, Accenture will be marking Time to Talk Day by encouraging conversations around mental health and ensuring our employees are aware of the support available. "We are giving them the tools and resources and communication so that we have a healthy culture around sports because we know the Hurricanes are an wonderful group of leaders in our community".

Frankie Bridge, who is supporting the campaign, said "I love social media but it's easy to only share the "fun parts" when there's often a lot more going on behind the scenes".

One person who found social media to be beneficial for mental health was Clive Buckenham, 50, who chose to share his experiences of depression with his family and friends online. "However, doing so connected me with an incredible community of people I'd never met who became great friends and a great support".

The campaign coincides with "Time to Talk Day", which encourages everyone to talk about mental health.

In October a year ago, JOE partnered with mental health charity Time to Change, changing our logo from yellow to pink as part of an anti-stigma campaign encouraging people to show a genuine willingness to talk and listen by asking twice if they were anxious how a mate was doing.

At Accenture, we have always been working to foster a culture that focuses on mental health awareness and preventive strategies, where conversations around mental health are normalised.

If you are anxious about your mental health, you may benefit from speaking to a professional.
