New campaign launched to help anyone struggling emotionally in Kensington and Chelsea

Published on: Wednesday 20 June 2018

Today the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) are launching the 'OK not to feel OK' campaign.

This campaign promotes sources of support and help to anyone struggling emotionally in Kensington and Chelsea.

They want to reduce the stigma around mental illness and death by suicide within the community by talking more openly about this and for anyone in distress to feel confident to turn to someone for support and seek help before they reach crisis point.

The campaign will focus on identifying and owning how you feel and asking for help to cope with these feelings.

This campaign isn’t only about suicide but about promoting good mental health. If those who are most at risk can’t reach out directly then we hope their loved ones might find this campaign a useful source of support and help. Posters and flyers have already been mailed out for community hubs to display.

You may have already seen tweets from the @grenfellsupport Twitter feed and posts on the Grenfell Support Facebook page, please share these far and wide. There is also a 'OK not to feel OK' dedicated Facebook page for the campaign so please do take a look and like the page and get your friends and colleagues to like it too.
