Providing support groups for people suffering mental distress 

12 years of providing peer led mental health support groups in the Bristol area 

CHANGES BRISTOL has been running peer support meetings in the City of Bristol for over 12 years and our expertise helps more and more people each year. Our meetings are safe places for people to come and talk about their feelings and to take steps toward improving their lives.

The meetings are non-judgemental and confidential and are free to access. You can download a copy of our leaflet by clicking on the thumbnail on the left.

Statistics show that as many as 1 in 4 people will suffer from some form of mental distress at some point in their lives. Many more will be indirectly affected as their friends and loved ones suffer.

Mental distress can take many forms including worrying, feeling low, confusion, anxiety, panic, depression, mood swings, strange ideas or senses playing tricks. If mental distress is affecting your quality of life, it may be time to seek help .
