In response to the Coronavirus outbreak and based on Government guidance, Bromley, Lewisham & Greenwich Mind has taken the difficult decision to suspend face-to-face services to safeguard people’s health and safety.
We know people rely on our support and are aware that many of us may be feeling anxious and isolated at this time. As a result, we are prioritising telephone support to local people experiencing mental health problems, and people living with dementia and their carers, over the coming weeks.
We are working to ensure our website provides you with up-to-date information about the services and support we are currently offering.
World Mental Health Day
Saturday 10th October marked World Mental Health Day. This year’s theme was Mental Health for All, something that has become increasingly important as the psychological impact of COVID-19 becomes ever clearer.
To celebrate the event, our staff, volunteers, clients and partners collaborated on a series of films, sharing their personal experiences of mental health issues, and offering advice and support.
This year has been tough for all of us, but particularly for people living with mental illness. We hope that through sharing our lived experience and advice we can help change the way people think and act about mental health problems and, in doing so, bring comfort to anyone affected.

We offer a number of mental health and wellbeing services to Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee (BAMER) communities: find out more.
