Over 45,000 Hammersmith and Fulham Residents (1 in 4) will have experienced a mental health problem this year, but it is likely that only a small percentage will have sought professional help or support.
On Thursday 26 November, Hammersmith and Fulham Mind is holding an event to raise awareness of the range of services they provide in the local community and the opportunities for volunteering.
They have been working to enhance and protect the mental health of the local community for over 30 years, by combating stigma, empowering residents, promoting wellbeing and supporting recovery.
The event will enable residents to see for themselves the many preventative projects they currently run that can benefit everyone’s wellbeing.

Pathways, Building Connections, Befriending, Beating Isolation, Cityfix, Cleaning Hit Squad, Heads Up, Time to Talk, Well at Work, In Education Support and Advocacy; both community and inpatient.
