Connecting in Brent


This week Brent Thrive – changing the conversation around mental health  - was delighted to host an event to celebrate MH Week. This year’s theme is loneliness, a very apt topic given the impact on all of us over the last two years of the pandemic. People with lived experience, mental health providers and partners met up at The Yellow Wembley Park, courtesy of Dee and Ash, to share insights and experiences and what we can do to reduce loneliness. Over 60 people enjoyed a pleasant gathering where we shared views and suggestions on  what is needed in Brent to reduce loneliness, and also what we as individuals can do in our own communities or neighbourhoods  to create opportunities for our neighbours to connect around an area of interest or activity.
