The Great Mental Health is an innovative programme to support Haringey residents of all ages to achieve and maintain good mental health and wellbeing. This is so important as the COVID-19 pandemic has led to unprecedented levels of depression, anxiety and other related issues such as loneliness and social isolation. The local evidence base shows that the prevalence of these issues has also increased significantly across Haringey in light of the pandemic.

Through this programme, we want to empower people to achieve whatever great mental health means for them and also to encourage people to support each other through acts of kindness.

The programme will run for one year and it consists of a wide range of activities and resources that can benefit people living and working in the borough. These will be offered through seven prevention and promotion programmes, led by different organisations, that aim to reduce the mental health impacts arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and widening mental health inequalities.
