The next Mental Health Conversations event will focus on developing a mental health strategy for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
Are you caring for someone with a mental illness?
Rethink Mental Illness are running a six week course for family, friends and carers.
Young Carers Voice (YCV) members presented their mental health poster designs to Bristol City Mayor Marvin Rees.
South Gloucestershire Council want to hear carers’ views on their draft Adult Mental Health Strategy 2017 – 2022. Click here for more information. The deadline for responding is 6 October.
However if you miss the deadline or have further comments, there is an event for organisations and the public to have their say on Monday 23 October 10am-12pm at Yate Leisure Centre. Attending this would be a great opportunity to make sure that carers’ voices are heard. Book and view more about the event here: If you plan to attend and would like some support preparing for the event, contact us here.
The Wellbeing College is a programme of wellbeing activities held across the breadth of South Gloucestershire. Any adult can take part in sessions and they are all free. Sessions include mindfulness, emotional resilience, art sessions, physical activity sessions and peer groups.
They also run sessions, specifically for carers, on promoting positive mental health. To find out more, contact the college: firstname.lastname@example.org 01454 821 856
