About Us

Thrive is a model that began in New York, led by Mayor Blasio. It was then brought to the West Midlands, London and Bristol through the global Thrive Cities network. This network also includes Stockholm and Amsterdam and is growing across the world.

Thrive Bristol is our city’s ten year programme to improve mental health and wellbeing. It is focusing on how different parts of our city – such as our communities, our places of education and work, and our homes, can keep us mentally healthy, recognising that as little as 10% of our population’s health and wellbeing can be linked to access to healthcare.

Thrive Bristol is led by partners from across the city through the Thrive Bristol Steering Group, supported by Bristol City Council’s Public Health team. This reports in to Bristol’s Health and Wellbeing Board
