A special event offering advice to those struggling with their mental health was held on Tuesday to mark World Mental Health Day.

Held at YMCA’s Thames Gateway centre in Rush Green Road, Romford, the #IAMWHOLE event gave people the chance to meet mental health organisations such as Tapestry, Cocaine Anonymous, the Alzheimer’s Society and the North East London Foundation Trust (Nelft), Havering’s mental health service provider.

Organised in conjunction with Havering Mind, the event focused #IAMWHOLE; a nationwide anti-stigma mental health campaign being launched by the YMCA and NHS.

The YMCA also held a networking morning where different groups had the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas, as well as hear from speakers from the YMCA, Havering Mind, and Nelft.

Representing the Nelft teams, Brian Campbell, community mental health nurse, said: “It was a great event to draw all the third sector charities and teams from Nelft together to work for the mental health of young people in Havering.”
