Real Talk - young people’s debate for Mental Health Awareness Week

Real Talk, Camden’s topical debate for young people aged 16 to 21, is back for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week (9 to 15 May).

This face-to-face event - Real Talk: Life After Lockdown - is taking place in Camden's Council Chamber at the Crowndale Centre, 218 Eversholt Street, London NW1 1BD on Wednesday 11 May, 5.30 to 7pm (arrive from 5pm onwards).

Free food will be provided for young people who attend and we expect a lively debate on issues ranging from:

  • Success versus happiness – which is more important?
  • Mental health and self-esteem – how do you find support and services?
  • What have you learned during the pandemic?
  • What activities have you enjoyed since lockdown ended?
  • What barriers, if any, have you faced in taking part in activities?

You need to book your free place in advance by emailing sandra.soteriou@camden.gov.uk or calling Sandra on 020 7974 5450.
