#TeamHeadsTogether takes on the 2019 London Marathon

It's that time of year again! It's the London Marathon and Heads Together has another incredible group of runners taking on 26.2 miles all in the name of mental health.

Determined to change the conversation on mental health, #TeamHeadsTogether took on the 2019 London Marathon.

All of our runners have a different reason for running and we’re so proud of everything they have achieved. Not only did they tackle 26.2 miles, but they trained and campaigned for months to make sure that anybody struggling with their mental health won’t ever feel alone.
