A mental health system for Bristol
Public and voluntary sector organisations were brought together under the banner of Bristol Mental Health to provide NHS funded services in the city in October 2014.
It is an innovative new system created following calls from service users, carers and GPs for better mental health services in the city. People with direct experience of using mental health services have been involved in designing the services along with carers, voluntary organisations, community groups and health and social care professionals. You can read more about the way services were designed here.
There are 18 organisations providing services, each one chosen for its expertise and experience. They have come together under the banner of Bristol Mental Health to work together to deliver the best possible support to the city's diverse communities.
