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.

We provide a safe space for people to confidentially share their needs and experiences of services, while we campaign for change by holding local providers to account.

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

We hope that by challenging current practice, we can increase parity of esteem and instigate worthwhile change, allowing people to access the care that they deserve.
