Great Mental Health Day will take place across London on 26 January

Now in its third year, Great Mental Health Day is a London-wide initiative and for 2024 will explore the importance of meaningful connections and highlight the power of relationships, collectivising, and social networks.
The start of a new year is a time for setting goals and seeing it as a chance for positive change or action. But for many of us, things may continue to feel challenging or uncertain, particularly as cost-of-living pressures are impacting on many people’s mental health and wellbeing.
Great Mental Health Day will get us talking about our mental health and wellbeing and to help break that stigma that so often exists around the subject. It is an opportunity to share awareness of the great local support services that are available. As well as acting as a reminder that we can all do our bit to spread hope and kindness, and to help each other.
You can also get involved by exploring the Great Mental Health Day interactive map on Thrive LDN’s website, join an online event , or use the hashtag #GreatMentalHealth to share their own stories, experiences and plans for the day across all social media platforms.
For more details about the day visit Thrive LDN’s website or search ‘Great Mental Health Day London’.
