1. We’re very proud of Lambeth’s Dr Jacqui Dyer MBE and Black Thrive Lambeth’s role in developing the first anti racism framework for mental health trusts and service providers in the country. The Patient and Carer Race Equality Framework (or PCREF) was published by NHS England on 30 October, and will support mental health services to embed anti-racism within their organisations.

  2. To mark Black History Month (BHM) this year, Lambeth is celebrating Black lives, culture and diversity. Lambeth Together is committed to reducing health inequalities across Lambeth. Read more about the work of our Equality, diversity and inclusion workgroup.

    Lambeth Together Health champions will be at the Thriving Stockwell event on Sat, 21 October at 10am until 5pm at the Tate South Lambeth Library ready to provide health checks including blood pressure and share health information with the community.

  3. Lambeth marks World Mental Health Day with a free event from Healthwatch and free suicide awareness training.

    World Mental Health Day takes place on 10 October every year. National and local organisations and groups organise events and activities either on the day or in the days surrounding it, putting a spotlight on the importance of mental health, support available for people and things people can do to protect their mental health.
