ABOUT THE BRIDGE COLLECTIVE
We are a group of people whose lived experiences have sometimes been labelled as mental illness. Some of us use or have used mental health services, and our group includes people with experience of supporting friends and family. We aim to share our experiences: in an environment of peer support, to promote positive public awareness, increase confidence in talking about mental health, to improve mental health services and increase access to a wide range of understandings about mental health.
