Thrive LDN 2021

Once again, our friends from Thrive LDN have been incredibly busy organising a range of exciting activities for World Mental Health Day - they include:

  • Thrive LDN's World Mental Health Day 2021 activities [beginning 27 Sept]: To mark World Mental Health Day 2021, Thrive LDN is organising a festival of activities co-developed with young Londoners called Never Alone LDN. Young people are encouraged to come together for a range of film screenings, live music performances, creative workshops, and panel discussions, all held at Rich Mix, east London. The activities look at how young Londoners can come together to overcome the challenges we face and reflect on the experiences of young Londoners during the pandemic. The programme will see four separate free-to-attend events and highlights will also be streamed through Thrive LDN’s YouTube channel on WMHD. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn.

  • Walking Out of Darkness charity walk: On World Mental Health Day, Thrive LDN is a supporting partner for mental health charity CLASP’s Walking Out of Darkness event. The charity walk will start at 10am from Battersea Park, London, on Sunday, 10 October 2021. Participants can choose a charity of their choice to fundraise for or simply just join people, walking in unity across London. Reshare on social media: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook.
  •  

  • Free bereavement and loss webinars: We know that through your role you may be supporting those who are bereaved. In light of the pandemic this may be more common, and you may find it hard to find the right words or know what to say. To support you and anyone in a community/frontline role, Thrive LDN is working in partnership with Cruse Bereavement Care to deliver free, one-hour webinars on Bereavement and Loss Awareness during September and October 2021.Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn.

  • Tools, ideas and inspiration for better wellbeing: We’ve created a new space on Thrive LDN’s website to help promote good mental wellbeing or to find out how to support others, all designed around those factors we know protect mental health. Whether you’re looking for yourself, or to help a friend or others in your community, explore simple tools, ideas and inspiration to help improve wellbeing. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn
  •  

  • #ZeroSuicideLDN campaign – a big thank you!: More than 250,000 Londoners have accessed suicide prevention training since the launch of #ZeroSuicideLDN citywide campaign two years ago. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported the campaign – reaching this milestone is a collective achievement. Over the coming months, the refreshed campaign will see a greater focus on Londoners supporting young people across the capital, including universities and education settings, plus aspirations of working with London’s night-time economy. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn
  •  

  • The impact of COVID 19 on Londoners’ mental health and wellbeing: As part of our role, we produce regular working papers summarising the known impact of COVID-19 on Londoners’ mental health and wellbeing, implications for response and recovery planning, and suggested actions we take – locally, sub-regionally and regionally – to address immediate and anticipated future needs. This work includes extensive community engagement and participatory action research with communities that are disproportionately at risk of poor outcomes in order to improve the representativeness and granularity of available information.
  •  

  • Support for faith and belief communities: London’s digital wellbeing service, Good Thinking, has been working with a diverse range of faith and belief communities across London to provide tailored wellbeing content and support. This includes collaborating with local councils, CCGs, charities and other organisations.
  •  

  • Further resources and tools: There are a number of resources available to support Londoners’ mental health and wellbeing, as well as London’s digital wellbeing service, Good Thinking.
