Great mental health day

Join other Londoners talking about mental health, destigmatise asking for help and make more people aware of the great support available to them.

London is celebrating its first Great Mental Health Day on Friday, 28 January.

The aim of the day is to get residents talking about mental health, destigmatise asking for help and to make more people aware of the great support available to them.

The campaign’s interactive map of London is now live, which has plenty of free events taking place, including yoga, meditation and self-care.

Councillor Josh Blacker, cabinet member for healthy lives said: “Not everyone has mental health struggles, but everyone has a mental health.

“After the last few years it is more important than ever to look out for those around you and offer support to your loved ones. I am happy that we are supporting this campaign to get people talking and I urge others to get involved too.

“The council offers plenty of mental health services for those that need help, or if you are worried about someone around you. So please do check the information below.”
