Innovative Wellbeing Network launches to transform mental health services in Hackney

The innovative new City and Hackney Wellbeing Network, funded by Hackney Council, was officially launched last week with an event at Hackney Museum.

The City and Hackney Wellbeing Network, led by City and Hackney Mind, is a dynamic partnership of eleven voluntary mental health organisations in Hackney with a wealth of expertise in working with different communities.

At the event, delegates heard from Cllr Sharon Patrick (Speaker of Hackney Council), the chair of City and Hackney Mind and key representatives from each network organisation, about the new network and its objectives.

The network will help adult residents in Hackney and the City of London to build resilience to prevent the onset of mental health problems, and to alleviate issues such as stress and low mood.  The network will also support people with severe mental health conditions to substantially improve their quality of life and avoid unnecessary hospital admissions. 

Krishna Maharaj, CEO of City and Hackney Mind, said “We are excited to be launching a new and innovative service for the residents of Hackney and the City of London. Through working in partnership with organisations that have such valuable expertise, we are confident that we can support people towards better mental health”.
