The Glastonbury Mental Health Network aims to connect local people with projects, practitioners, services and events that can support and improve mental health and wellbeing
We want to build links between those with a professional and personal interest in mental health, and create opportunities for networking, sharing ideas and resources, and increasing knowledge and understanding. If you’d like to find out more, please sign up to our quarterly newsletter.
We will respond to the needs of our local community by developing our own projects and services, including local Safe Spaces – the first of which we piloted recently over several weeks at The Red Brick Building.
We recognise the need for training on mental health for businesses, community groups and individuals, so will work with partners to develop and deliver training that meets local needs.
Breaking down the stigma surrounding mental health is a key part of our vision, and promoting a culture of openness around our mental health experiences and deeper human needs.
At the root of our work is the understanding that we all suffer and we can all thrive.
GMHN is a registered charity, whose Trustees are Chloe Forfitt, Andrew Gowland, Fen Bagias and Jolene Feeley.
