Thrive LDN, the citywide movement to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Londoners, has published Londoners Said… – a report summarising the findings of the 17 community conversations run in partnership with the Mental Health Foundation (MHF) in half of London’s boroughs.
Over 1,000 Londoners attended workshops to discuss what could improve mental health and wellbeing in their borough, producing a total of 180 pages of ideas and actions to be owned locally and taken forward. Those ideas and actions were collated and analysed by the MHF and resulted in the Londoners Said… report.
The full findings and rich feedback from Londoners Said… can be explored via Thrive LDN’s website.
Londoners Said… will be launched at the Thrive LDN Summit event taking place at City Hall taking place today (Thursday, 6 December 2018). The Thrive LDN Summit is bringing together health and care partners, politicians, local councils, charities, Londoners and many more to discuss the progress being made towards the shared goal of improving the mental health and wellbeing of all Londoners.
The Summit presents an opportunity to review the challenges and successes of 2018 and look forward to delivering the recommendations of the Londoners Said… report. The Summit will facilitate discussion sessions on how the health sector and local government should respond and how borough-level pilots can lead the way with prevention initiatives.
The publication of Londoners Said… and the collaboration between partners and leaders at the Summit will give added momentum to Thrive LDN’s movement for happier, healthier lives for all Londoners.
