World Mental Health Day 10th October 2023

World Mental Health Day is about raising awareness of mental health and driving positive change for everyone’s mental health. Some children, adults and families in Hillingdon are impacted by poor mental health. This can affect people of all ages, in all walks of life. To provide the best possible support we need to understand what it is like to live with mental health problems.

The briefing below has been co-produced with people with lived experience, we have used their words and language as they reflect on their own experience. Generous and brave people in Hillingdon have shared their stories, art and poetry for this briefing to help us understand their experiences. The briefing also contains information about local resources related to supporting people with a range of mental health concerns.
