The aim of the Lung Cancer Awareness campaign is to raise awareness to encourage people displaying the common symptoms of lung cancer, such as a persistent cough, breathlessness or unexplained weight-loss, to visit their GP. During the month, many people throughout the country and the world come together for the lung cancer community.  #Headhigh  @Roy_Castle_Lung

 COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) affects millions of people across the UK, and describes a group of lung conditions that make it difficult to empty air out of the lungs because your airways have been narrowed. If you live with the affects of #COPD or other respiratory illness (like #Asthma) then it's vital that you have your #Flu vaccination.  #COPDawarenessmonth helps to raise awareness of this condition, particularly as many people are living with it without realising.

Support and services in Camden

There are many mental health services available in Camden and this service directory aims to make it easier to find the support that is right for you.

We believe mental health and wellbeing is as important as looking after your physical health. Below you will find a list of the services available, what they offer and who they are best suited for. There may be a number of services that could help you boost your mental health and wellbeing.

Some organisations offer activities that will suit a wide range of people, rather than focusing on a particular activity or type of mental health support.

If you’re not sure where to start, you might find it useful to contact some of the service providers or have a conversation with your GP. 


The self-care sessions are open to parents, carers, patients and local Camden residents. There are 25 free available slots at each support session. Poster attached for your information - you will also find below a youtube link of the promotional video.

Starting from 11 October 2018, a Camden GP and a Camden pharmacist will deliver four workshops in locations across the Borough. The workshops will inform participants about what local services are available to them in addition to their GPs, and how they can better manage their health.  Attendees will receive a take-away booklet full of useful resources and details of Camden's health and wellbeing services.   All you have to do to register is click on the following link – click here.
