Positive Minds helps you grow through life’s challenges, supporting your mental health and wellbeing.
Positive Minds supports adults in BS13 to find their path to better mental health and wellbeing. Mental health problems can result from many factors including; social isolation, debt, illness, poor diet and lack of exercise, stress, domestic abuse, substance misuse/dependency, and from experiences of physical, emotional or sexual abuse, or neglect, discrimination or violence in childhood.
Mental health awareness week 18-24 May
This year, the theme of Mental Health Awareness Week is kindness.
Over this week, we are going to focus on being kind to ourselves first, to build the foundations of our own mental wellbeing, and to celebrate kindness we have received from others.
Check out our daily tips for being kind to yourself this week and beyond.
Based on 10 years’ experience of the needs within the BS13 community, our team has created a trauma- informed model of support that enables us to meet our clients where they are at. We recognise that mental health issues often sit alongside social and family problems, so we balance therapeutic work with practical support and activity to ensure our clients’ day-to-day needs are being met, whilst looking at strategies to improve mental health overall. Positive Minds can help people access a range of activities or volunteering opportunities through our other Heart of BS13 projects and within the local community.
