Service users invited to ‘Conversation Cafes’

Drinking teaPeople 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 December.
