Great Mental Health Day 2023 is celebrating the power of community kindness and telling the story of how we’ve come together for one another across London.

In a year that’s remained challenging for many of us, it has been our communities, friends and families which have played the most important role in in getting us through difficult times together.

Great Mental Health Day is here to help get us talking about our mental health and wellbeing and to help break that stigma that so often exists around the subject. It’s also an opportunity to learn more about the great local initiatives and support services that are available right across London.

Great Mental Health Day 2023 acts as a reminder that we can all do our bit to spread hope and kindness, and to help each other.
