In supporting local people experiencing mental health problems, Bromley & Lewisham Mind’s Community Support Service in Lewisham regularly experiences the close link between poor mental health and housing, financial and employment issues. Through contributing to events like this, the Community Support Service aims to voice the opinions and experience of people living with mental health problems, so they can get the support they need to avoid financial and housing problems and improve their mental health.
