Service users invited to ‘Conversation Cafes’
People using mental health services
across Bristol are invited to an innovative new pilot called
'Conversation Cafes'. The cafes have been developed as a social
meet up in Bristol for service users to socialise with one another
in a relaxed, friendly environment.
The idea for the cafes was developed by Bev Woolmer, Service
User Involvement Co-Ordinator at Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health
Partnership NHS Trust, alongside Lynne Newbury, Strategic Lead for
Service Users and Carers at Bristol Mental Health, in response to
service user feedback.
"The cafes have been designed as somewhere for people to
socialise with others in a friendly space. We're looking forward to
welcoming people along!" says Lynne.
The first café will be held in The Arts House, 108A Stokes
Croft, Bristol, on Friday 4 November, 12pm-2pm. The second café
will be held in the same place, at the same time, on Friday 2
