Bristol Independent Mental Health Network

BIMHN

The Bristol Independent Mental Health Network (BIMHN) represents a diverse community of past, current and future users of Bristol’s mental health services, as well as those with lived experiences of mental health.

Our work involves working with people with lived experience of mental health, providing a space for them to confidentially share their needs and experiences of services.

We campaign for change by holding local providers of mental health services to account, and actively play a part the design and re-design of local mental health services.

BIMHN also acts against discrimination, and promotes a positive understanding of mental health through education of individuals, employers and organisations.
