Welcome to our Wellbeing Colleges

We run workshops and activities to support and improve people’s mental health in two wellbeing colleges, one in Bristol and one in North Somerset.

We have prerecorded YouTube sessions on a range of topics such as Boost your Mood and Writing for Wellbeing which are available to everyone. And there are also blogs and stories from our learners and tutors which you can find below in our latest news and on Twitter and Instagram.

For people living in Bristol who have used Bristol Mental Health services, and their carers.  We also welcome patients of Inner City and East locality GP surgeries.
