SecondStep on JustGiving

Second Step is a leading mental health charity based in the west of England, with offices in Bristol, Bath and Weston-super-Mare. We work across the region offering housing, support and hope to hundreds of people with many kinds of mental health problems.

Our roots are in Bristol and we have worked in the city for over 27 years.  We have a strong track record of helping people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.  We run a successful mentoring project called Horizons matching people who are under threat of losing their home with volunteer mentors. We are the lead partner in the exciting Golden Key Programme which works with some of the most vulnerable people in Bristol.

We also help people to manage low mood, anxiety and depression by providing psychological therapies and specialist courses in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and through PositiveStep in North Somerset.

We pride ourselves on our innovative approach, based on the principle of recovery. We always make sure that the people who use our housing, support and psychological services are at the heart of everything we do, shaping the way our services are delivered.

Under the banner of Bristol Mental Health we are working closely with partners to deliver new recovery focussed community mental health services in Bristol.  To find out more click here.
