  • The right care, provided in the right place at the right time
  • Modernising the Mental Health Act
  • Addressing the growing crisis in young people’s mental health
  • A benefits system that works for people with mental health problems
  • Mental health promoted and protected at work 
  • Mental health at the heart of policy

Why we work together

We are the voice of mental health in London. Together we give a stronger voice to Londoners living with mental health problems, to challenge stigma and inequalities and to deliver real change.

We are mental health specialists with grassroots connections; by taking a pan London approach we can build on our local knowledge to deliver a vision for London that is led by lived experience.

Our combined expertise allows us to reach more Londoners with quality services that are accessible wherever they live.

We work in partnership to support innovation so we can deliver more together than we could as individual organisations.

“Local Minds across London have been working together and supporting each other for many years, but in recent times our collaboration has become stronger. Inspired by the potential that working together across the capital brings, we have ​begun to see the strength of our collective influence ​as well as opportunities ​to respond to the mental health needs of Londoners that goes far beyond what we can do as local charities.”
