Daniel Heller is an alumni from 2009/10 and has been working on the Thrive LDN project which launched yesterday at TUFF FC
Residents, businesses, schools and community and faith organisations in London are being invited to join a new citywide movement that aims to get everyone talking and working together to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Londoners.
One in four Londoners will suffer from poor mental health and we all know people who have been affected. However, there is still a stigma attached and we are still not comfortable talking about mental health in the way we should be.
Supported by the Mayor of London and led by the London Health Board, Thrive LDN and partners have identified six aspirations for London and actions that will be taken over the next year to improve the mental health of Londoners. Young people, and faith communities have been identified as key people to achieving those aspirations.
They want to hear what all Londoners think of these plans, what ideas you haveto improve mental health in your communities and how Thrive LDN can support you to make these ideas happen.
There are many ways people can get involved with events and activities being held across London throughout the summer. To find out more visit www.thriveldn.co.uk or join the conversation on twitter at @Thrive LDN.
