A city free from mental health stigma and discrimination

Nearly nine out of ten people with mental health problems say that stigma and discrimination have a negative effect on their lives.

Our aspiration

We will work with partners to develop a programme that ends mental health stigma and discrimination in London. We will ensure support is available to help improve people’s understanding of mental health and push for more mental health first aid training to be provided so London becomes a city that is more mental health aware and equipped to act.

Thrive LDN, through its partners, will work together to develop phased programmes that will address stigma and discrimination, improve mental health understanding and support people to stay well and help spot the first signs of poor mental health.

We will support a range of interventions that give access to mental health first aid and other forms of training in every borough, so that London becomes a city that is more aware of the signs of emerging poor mental health.

Stay tuned for more information on our ideas to reduce mental health stigma and discrimination.

Although we have started working to think about how we make Londoners happier and healthier, we want to include as many voices as possible.
