Mental health magazine - survey

7th January 2019

A platform for people to have their creative voices heard by contributing poetry, artwork, stories and points of view

We would like to hear your views if you:

  • live or work in London and have experienced mental health issues; or
  • care for others who have experienced mental health issues.

We launched our Speakeasy magazine in 2010 for people in hospital giving them a place to write, talk and express themselves. Speakeasy closed in 2018 as the funding ended. We would like to expand the reach of a similar magazine for people in hospitals and in the community, but we need to know what you think.

We believe that providing this kind of creative platform for people to express their views through different mediums can really help recovery. Your feedback will help us to find out if there is enough interest. If you tell us there is, we will seek new funding and launch a new magazine.

Get involved

Please have a look at examples of our Speakeasy magazines and fill in our short survey by Monday 1 April, 10am.

Focus groups

We will be holding several focus groups across London. Please email if you are interested in attending a focus group.

Thank you, we look forward to hearing your views.
