Monday July 5th: What’s Next in the Story: Community Mental Health Awareness, 1.00 to 2.30

Bring your insights about what can be done in the future to improve awareness of mental health and reduce stigma in your community. What’s great about the work being done, what could there be more of, and what’s not working? This session will offer a chance for communities to reflect on barriers to services, stigma around mental health and gaps in provision in light of the changes over the last year, and will be fed back to local decision makers.

We’ll be joined by Mark Allen from Bristol City Council (Thrive), and representatives from community organisations to talk about what has been happening in the city to support communities with their wellbeing.

Thursday July 8th: What’s Next in the Story: Mental Health Services in Bristol, 1.00 to 2.30

Join representatives from local services to find out about the work they do, how their provision has changed since the pandemic, and how they will be working in the future. Participants will have the chance to identify the key questions they have about mental health services and ask representatives directly.

We’ll be joined by Bristol Mind, Changes Bristol, Mothers for Mothers, Bristol Disability Equality Forum and Creative Shift.
