As we seek to rebuild and revive our vibrant City of London community spirit, this autumn The Royal Exchange has partnered with the charity Mind in the City to explore mental health and the important
role relationships, conversation, connection and community play in wellbeing. Mind in the City’s CEO, Vanessa Morris; her colleague Nichola Lauder – director of IRIE Mind, which champions Black mental
health – and Andrew Corrigan, general manager at The Royal Exchange, launched the initiative in a short film shot at The Royal Exchange on World Mental Health Day.
As part of our partnership with Mind in the City, The Royal Exchange has been interviewing members of the City of London community about their experiences with mental health, and what they have found helps them to maintain a healthy mind. Find out what they had to say, and read more about our Reconnect campaign, here.
