Hub partners

The work of the hub is as strong as its partnerships with people with lived experience of mental health and other organisations that want to bring an end to mental health discrimination. BIMHN is working with the following organisations to deliver the work of the hub:

Rethink

We believe a better life is possible for millions of people affected by mental illness.

Rethink is a national charity which supports almost 60,000 people every year across England to get through crises, to live independently and to realise they are not alone.

In Bristol, we have provided community based mental health support for people across the city for many years, helping those affected and their families make a positive difference in their lives. We are also passionate and proactive in improving access to mental health services across diverse communities and provide Mental Health First Aid training as part of this work.

As part of our work nationally and locally we campaign to reduce the stigma around mental illness, and are joint Coordinators for the Bristol Time to Change Hub 2018-19.

WellBeans Initiative

Joining the dots between emotional and physical wellbeing…

We are a Bristol based social peer network. Our vision is to create an open, compassionate culture that is without stigma, empowering people to be themselves. Mental health continues to be hugely misconceived within our society. We all have mental health ! And as with our physical health we will at some time in our lives experience ill health related to one or the other.

We provide innovative ways of engaging through social events, networking training and open dialogue therapy.
