Throughout the week the centre is being joined by Havering health ambassadors to highlight no smoking day and signpost general health advice.
Gemma Brooks, marketing and tenant liaison at The Mercury, said: 'It's crucial to be highlighting the importance of health and wellbeing as the majority of people lead busy lives and health is key to our everyday functioning and development.
'It's also great as a centre that we can help our customers to make healthier choices and as a health champion myself I understand that sign posting people can help them to understand what's available to them.'
On Sunday shoppers were treated to a seated massage from therapist Mike Kelly and a relaxing art class with Havering artist Nigel Hubbard.
