Do you have any questions about looking after your mental health and wellbeing during these challenging times? Or maybe you have a question that you would like answered about the mental health and wellbeing of the person you care for.

If so, Kingston Council is staging a virtual Question and Answer session on mental health next week and are asking residents to submit any questions they may have on mental health as part of the session.

They will be asking a panel of mental health professionals to offer guidance and advice on mental health and wellbeing.

The panel includes:

  • Danni O’Connell: Project Coordinator for ‘People Can Kingston’. This is a service new to Kingston focusing on helping people with learning disabilities, mental health and autism.
  • Annette Brown: Community Learning Manager for Kingston Adult Education. A main responsibility is running the mental wellbeing provision for Kingston residents. 
  • Daniel Barrett: Director at Thrive LDN. A citywide movement to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Londoners.
  • Katie Harrison: Principal Policy and Projects Officer in the Health and Social Care Team at London Councils. The team develops guidance, policy, and lobbying related to adult social care, children's social care and public health issues.

If you have a question, please submit it to by 5pm on Monday 11 May.

All questions will be treated in confidence and asked anonymously by the chair of the discussion. 

Kingston Council have advised that the session will be pre-recorded and available to view during Mental Health Awareness Week (Monday 18 May).
