Come along to the free session next month to learn more about how to support those in mental distress
Changes Bristol is a mental health charity that provides weekly peer support meetings for those in mental distress. These services are free to access, with no referral required from a health professional or GP, and are open-ended so that people can access the service for as long as they would like.
Many Bristolians see Changes Bristol as a lifeline. Changes Bristol member Chloe suffered with severe anxiety during her pregnancy and early years of motherhood. Chloe put it simply ‘I’m honestly not sure I would be here now if it wasn’t for Changes Bristol.’ Read Chloe’s story here.
Whilst these services are mainly used for those who need help with their own personal mental health, it is of upmost important that those of us who care for people who are in mental distress are properly cared for too.
Psychiatrist Dr Phill Charles and Changes Bristol Project Manager Jason Washbourne are hosting a free and informal session to offer honest advice on how to support someone with mental health problems, improve your own mental wellbeing and answer any questions you may have.
On the evening you will be able to:
- Come and talk openly with our mental health experts.
- Find out about local support services available in Bristol.
- Learn some new positive ways to maintain mental wellbeing
- Build knowledge on how to help your loved ones who may be in distress.
Do you have some tricky or personal questions? You can ask them anything. To submit an anonymous question in advance to the mental health experts which will be answered during the session, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org noting if you would like to remain anonymous.
