Ciaran White, events co-ordinator at Havering Mind, said: “It is so important to raise awareness of mental health, to make people understand that it is something that we all have and something that we can all develop problems with.
“We hold events like this to connect with as many people as we can and to remove the stigma that can surround mental health.”
