A youth-led radio station has partnered with Newham’s Clinical Commissioning Group for National Mental Health Week.

The features will include interviews with chart toppers Rudimental, UK artist Bashy and rapper Akala, as well as experts from the Newham CCG.

The radio station will highlight on air the symptoms and support available to people suffering from mental health issues, as well as interacting with listeners through social media and its website.
