Today, Thursday 5 February, is Time To Talk Day - a national event organised by the Time To Change campaign, to encourage everyone to spend five minutes talking about their mental health and wellbeing. In recent years, social media has played a big part in these conversations, so today also sees the launch of RSCPP's survey on social media and mental wellbeing.

We want to know if, how and why you use (or don't use) different social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, etc, to talk about your mental wellbeing. Perhaps you've been affected by a bereavement, or had a new baby. Maybe you've had a stressful day job hunting, or you've met someone with the same mental health condition who really 'gets' you. You might be having relationship issues, or perhaps you had some really positive feedback at work that's boosted your self esteem. You name it, if it affects how you feel, we want to know if, how and where you talk about it.

It doesn't matter if you're Facebook-phobic and would never dream of sharing your feelings online, a Twitterholic who shares your every thought, or an avid Instagrammer who expresses yourself through images - we want to hear from you.

If you are using a mobile device, you may find it easier to access the survey by clicking here. Otherwise, please complete the survey below.
