In partnership with Citizens UK, South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust is inviting individuals and communities across South West London to join an online listening summit on Monday 1 March to share their stories of the pressure COVID-19 has placed on their mental health and wellbeing.
Please register for the online event here: South West London Listens Summit
The South West London Listens Summit forms part of the wider South London Listens campaign. South London Listens aims to give everyone in South London a voice as solutions are developed to help promote and protect mental health and protect our communities’ mental health from the impact of COVID-19.
Throughout January and February, we have been holding listening sessions across South London to gather insight and feedback on the psychological fall out of COVID-19.
We want to ensure we listen to as many people as possible. This listening summit will provide an opportunity for communities in South West London to share their experiences, reflect and contribute to the campaign. We encourage everyone based in South West London with a commitment to acting on mental health to attend.
Community leaders will chair the event, providing an update on the project and we will hear reflections from local leaders on the mental health impacts of the pandemic. After this, those attending will then be invited to enter break out rooms and have group discussions to answer the following questions:
The findings from this exercise will contribute to South London Listens and the broader mental health prevention programme - attendees will be encouraged to get involved in its next stage in the Spring.
The event will take place virtually on Monday 1 March at 1pm-2:30pm. If you are unable to attend the event but would like to get involved, you can also find a guide on running your own listening workshop here.
