For the fourth consecutive year, Thrive LDN and the Mayor of London’s Peer Outreach Team hosted a series of young Londoner-led events to mark World Mental Health Day.

This year’s festival, Never Alone LDN, took a look at how young Londoners can come together to overcome the challenges we face, and reflecting on the experiences of young Londoners over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This year, we partnered with East London’s Rich Mix to host four events across three days, showcasing some of London’s best young performing talent, alongside panel discussions, conversation, visual art and workshops.

For World Mental Health Day on Sunday 10th October, this culminated in bringing together highlights from our two filming days at Rich Mix into a film, for broadcast at the Rich Mix cinema in East London, as well as on our website and YouTube channel. Click the video above to watch now.
