Save the Date for London’s Great Mental Health Day 2024

We are delighted to be supporting London’s Great Mental Health Day on Friday 26 January. Now in its third year, it is a London-wide initiative which this year will explore the importance of meaningful connections and the power of relationships, collectivising and social networks.  The start of the new year can be an opportunity for positive change, action or setting goals. For many of us, things continue to feel challenging or uncertain and particularly when we are feeling the cost-of-living pressures which can impact our wellbeing. Great Mental Health Day hopes to get us talking about our mental health and wellbeing, and to help break that stigma that so often exists around the subject. It is also an opportunity to shine a light on great local support services that are available, as well as being a reminder that we can all do our bit to help each other and spread some kindness.

On that note, a group of residents here at the Charterhouse set up a Winter Warm Space initiative in 2022, which evolved into the Community Space and is now open on Friday mornings all year round. They wanted to welcome in people who were living in the area who might not otherwise visit, and create an opportunity to build meaningful connections with other members of our local community. Anyone in the area is very welcome to drop by for a chat and a free hot drink every Friday at 10.00 – 12.00, or just to come and enjoy some quiet time in a beautiful setting.

Londoners can visit Thrive LDN’s website for more information on local support, events, online webinars, and workshops. If you are in the area on the day do drop into our Community Space between 10 – 12.00 to help us celebrate and build meaningful connections. You can also share your thoughts about what Great Mental Health means to you, and the importance of support from other people with @thriveLDN and with us on social media with the hashtag #GreatMentalHealth.
