Thrive LDN is a citywide public mental health partnership to ensure all Londoners have an equal opportunity for good mental health and wellbeing. As part of our role supporting health, social care and political leadership on public mental health, we have stepped up support to a number of geo-political crises in recent years.  

This has involved working with grassroot and diaspora communities to develop targeted support and wellbeing resources for refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people, as well as developing wellbeing resources for wider crisis situations affecting Londoners’ mental health and wellbeing.

Co-developing resources and support with London’s affected communities

Work is ongoing across the Greater London Authority, OHID London, ADPH London and the NHS Legacy and Health Equity Partnership to develop a supportive response for the mental health needs of Londoners during the ongoing situation in Israel and Palestine. Due to the sensitive and urgent nature of the situation, extensive engagement with communities has not yet taken place, but we are keen to work with community groups and develop a coordinated approach to engagement over time.  

Please contact to discuss any of the resources listed below and play a role in the development of community-led, accessible and culturally competent responses to the emerging situation.
