The South London Mental Health and Community Partnership, together with our partners including local authorities and community organisations, have launched a major listening campaign to support and protect people's mental health following Covid-19. The campaign is called South London Listens and will run from 10 November 2020 to 31 January 2021. Together with our community partner Citizens UK, our organisations will reach out to the communities we serve to help co-produce a two-year action plan set to be published in Spring 2021.
Over the Winter, Citizens UK has been inviting South Londoners to sign up to free training sessions to learn how to run listening workshops in their own neighbourhood, school, faith or community group to discuss the mental health impacts of Covid-19.
The campaign's final sessions are taking place on 6 January 12-1.30pm and tomorrow, 7 January between 6 and 7.30pm - sign up to take part here.
South London Listens follows an urgent virtual summit held on November 10, 2020, where organisations came together to shape our plans to meet the needs of people who may be at risk of becoming mentally unwell due to the impact of Covid-19.
The plan on a page to support the programme's development is available to download here and you can find more information and resources here.
