A local organisation has set up a mental health support group for women of colour, with the support of trained staff and volunteers.

Changes Bristol provide peer support groups in Bristol for anyone aged 18 or over. These groups are free, confidential, and don't require participants to have any official diagnosis.

The groups offer a safe, friendly space for people to share their worries.

Changes Bristol say:

 This will provide a safe space to connect, share and feel empowered by a supportive community. This peer support group is open to any woman over 18 who identifies as Black, Asian or of minority ethnicity. This peer support group will be open to discussions on racial experience, Covid-19 disproportionately impacting the Black, Asian & Minority Ethinic communities and any other topics which Women of Colour face with the support of trained staff and volunteers.

The group will be held using Zoom every Monday between 6:30 and 8:30pm, from the 18th January 2021. The groups will be held on a weekly basis and are free to use. There is no obligation to attend any set number of meetings - participants can drop in and out as they wish.
