1 in 4 people will suffer from a mental health problem at some point in their life. We should not be afraid to “talk about it".
Mental health is a human right – it’s time that mental health is available for all. We therefore need to make mental health a reality for all – for everyone, everywhere. We hope you will join us in celebrating Mental Health Day, particularly during this time within the content of COVID-19.
South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust is leading on celebrations for World Mental Health Day with a host of activities throughout the month of October. The theme for this year is “Mental Health for All. Greater Investment – Greater Access”, and through our programme of events our aim is to challenge stigma and discrimination and raise awareness of mental health issues.
World Mental Health Day isn’t simply a one-day event. We need to start now and continue our call to ensure that no-one is left behind. Together we are stronger and together we can make a big difference all over the world.
We have a variety of events running across our sites in south west London including:
Each year we run our digital photography competition #upliftingimage which is open to everyone living across our five boroughs - Sutton, Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Wandsworth.
This is a chance to talk positively about mental health and go into the running to win a prize. The idea is to inspire, explore and talk about it.
If you have any queries about mental health month or would like to collaborate on events next year, please email communications@firstname.lastname@example.org.
