Stamford Bridge opened its doors to local residents to mark World Mental Health Day with a fun afternoon in west London.
Fans from across the borough visited the Bridge to take part in the World Mental Health Day event, which included workshops, discussions, street dancing, Zumba and Capoeira classes.
There was also an exhibition of art created by members of mental health charity MIND in Hammersmith and Fulham, as well as live performances from local school children and bands.
‘We were offering a variety of different activities that would engage the local public,’ explained Michael Cole, London development manager.
‘We wanted to get people in by enticing them with these activities and then give them the information on mental health issues. Hopefully they have learned something they never knew before.’
Workshops on the stigma attached to mental health took place throughout the afternoon and attracted a lot of attention from local fans. They discussed how stigmas surrounding mental health can affect peoples’ lives and society as a whole.
