Please note: this item was posted ahead of the Christmas 2019 period. The information contained in the guide mentioned below is therefore outdated.

BIMHN are pleased to share the news that this year’s Christmas Mental Health and Wellbeing Services guide has been published. This guide outlines the services providing wellbeing and mental health support available to people in the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire period over the Christmas 2019 and New Year 2020 period.

The guide has been produced with input from BIMHN members, in collaboration with members of Clarity-North Somerset Independent Mental Health Network. This year’s guide follows on from the success of last year’s guide in helping people and communities navigate what is available at this time of this year.

Included is information about services operating over the seasonal period, making note of any changes to opening or operating times, and contact details. It brings together information about mental health support from both NHS and voluntary & community sector partners that can be accessed. Also included are details of national crisis and helplines.

You can view or download a copy of the guide on the Independent Mental Health Network’s website, here.

Help and Support – updated!

March 22, 2019 at 7:50 pm

We have recently updated our help & support pages. The support page provides a condensed list of services relating to mental health, in order to help signpost someone to the help they need. The information listed includes crisis services, helplines, and student-specific support information.

The former useful links section has been separated into its own page, and is intended to be a non-exhaustive yet comprehensive list of groups, bodies and agencies relevant to the local mental health landscape.

Have we missed anything? Do you have any suggestions on how the information could be presented differently? Get in touch!
