We are delighted to announce a collaboration between the How To Academy and Head Talks on a series of events on Mental Health and Wellbeing. The first event is on Sunday October 1st in West London and we would really like you to join us.

: Mental Illness: What is it and why is it so prevalent today? Speaking at the event are Jonny Benjamin MBE, Neil Laybourn and Charlotte Reed. Full details here

:  October 1, 2017 from 11am - 12.15pm

: The Tabernacle, 35 Powis Square (off Portobello Road), London W11 2AY COST: Free       Book here.

About the event:
Hear the inspiring story, featured on Channel 4's Man on the Bridge. Jonny Benjamin was ready to throw himself off London Bridge until a stranger, Neil Laybourn, stopped and talked him out of it. This event has led to a remarkable bond between the two, who are now active mental health campaigners.  Charlotte Reed was hit by depression at a young age, and found healing in drawing and illustrations. A passer-by visiting her stall at Portobello Market was so impressed, she was offered a book deal (the result is May the Thoughts be With You) and her story is being made into a Hollywood movie. 

How to book:
Places are allocated on a first-come first-served basis, so we recommend you book now. This event is FREE, though donations are very welcome and can be added at the time of booking.  We hope to see you there! The Head Talks team
