 Mental Health: why it matters and what we can do.

Natasha is particularly passionate about helping young people (plus their parents and teachers too!) and on making positive changes to the way the media covers issues relating to mental health.

This is a unique chance to hear Natasha’s inspiring story, to discover what really matters for good mental health and to join a growing movement of passionate people taking action to help put things right.

This event is in support of Action for Happiness. We want to make it accessible to as many people as possible, so rather than charging a fixed fee we’re instead asking you to make a donation. It would be great if you could donate £20, but if you can spare more, or feel unable to give that much, then please give what you feel is appropriate.

Any funds raised (beyond the costs of the event) will contribute directly to Action for Happiness’ work to promote mental wellbeing in local communities. Action for Happiness is part of the Young Foundation, a Registered Charity (274345) in England and Wales.
