Because people in Bristol have higher levels of poor mental health than the England average, this programme’s all-age approach has been established in response to this. It enables support for everyone in the city, with a focus on those with the greatest needs. We are testing new approaches to better understand what improves our wellbeing, to spread improvement across Bristol and beyond.
Thrive Bristol is being led by our partners – including our teachers, employers and voluntary sector – in collaboration with Bristol’s Public Health team. Together we are working to tackle stigma and discrimination and create a mentally healthy and thriving city.
