Thrive LDN: improving Londoners' mental health and wellbeing

Two million Londoners from all walks of life experience some form of poor mental health every year.

Thrive London, supported by the Mayor of London and the London Health Board, is a citywide movement for mental health. It strives for London to be:

  1. A city where individuals and communities are in the lead
  2. A city free from mental health stigma and discrimination
  3.  A city that maximises the potential of children and young people
  4. A city with a happy, healthy and productive workforce
  5.  A city with services that are there when and where needed
  6. A zero suicide city

London's communities, organisations and services will come together to support the movement with an important goal: for Londoners to enjoy healthier happier lives.

Starting the conversation

We'll be encouraging Londoners to join the movement - to learn more about mental health and attend key events where they can explore issues, share experiences, discover solutions and support others.

In the meantime, we welcome you to share your views with us. We really value insights from persons with lived experience and from those who care for and support them.

We also want Thrive LDN to be inclusive of London's diverse communities and the range of experiences and needs they have.

So if you have an interest in mental health please visit our website www.thriveldn.co.uk or share your experiences and ideas with us at: [email protected].
