Saturday 15 October, Noon to 5pm
in the Wimbledon Piazza, London SW19 1QB
October 10th 2016 is World Mental Health Day and stem4, the award winning Wimbledon based charity that aims to improve the mental well-being of teenagers, is holding a special event in the Wimbledon Piazza, on Saturday October 15th to mark this special date.
The event will run from midday to 5pm and will comprise a performance by Chickenshed Theatre Company, a rowing challenge, a raffle and a slogan competition amongst other events. It will be attended by BAFTA award winning actor, Georgina Campbell and fellow actor Rosie Day who are both Ambassadors for stem4. They will be joined by stem4 CEO, founder and Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Dr Nihara Krause. stem4 are delighted that Iain Maitland the author of ‘Dear Michael’ will be at the event signing copies of his exceptional book, recently launched. Michael is joining stem4 as an Ambassador.
stem4 hope is that they will not only bring awareness of teenage mental health issues to new groups of people but also be able to raise funds for the stem4 purple van which is intended to be a meeting point and mobile information hub that will be taken to schools and colleges throughout London.
stem4 would be appreciative if local businesses who are interested in supporting the event by contributing a raffle prize, a donation, or sponsorship of a small aspect of the event contact Katie Donnell on 07802 883597 or email Katie@stem4.org.uk.
Since its creation in June 2011 stem4 has gone from strength to strength, culminating in the receipt of several Merton Business Awards for its commitment to the Community. The aims of stem4 are to improve teenage mental health by encouraging early detection and education about issues such as eating disorders, self-harm, anxiety, depression and addiction. Since inception, stem4 has worked with over 70 schools, reaching over 9000 young people, parents and carers through workshops, conferences and a comprehensive website.
All funds raised at the event will be allocated towards the purchase and running costs of the purple van, which will, in turn, enable stem4 to expand the services offered to schools and disseminate crucial information and guidance to a new population of young people.
