We’re excited to announce our second ambassador, the brilliant Briony May! Briony is a TV presenter and baker who won the nation’s hearts during nine stressful weeks in the Great British Bake Off tent in 2018 – and won the Great Christmas Bake Off the very next year. She’s also appeared on such shows as ITV’s Loose Women and Beautiful Bakes With Juliet Sear; Channel 4’s An Extra Slice and The Steph Show; CBBC’s Blue Peter; and Something Special on CBeebies.
By becoming a Bristol Mind ambassador, Briony hopes to help spread the word: ““I have been dealing with my own mental health issues for a long time and it’s something that’s incredibly important to me. So many of us struggle in silence and Bristol Mind offers people the opportunity to speak to someone about how you’re feeling and what you’re going through. They support those who may not have anyone else. Mental health is so often overlooked when we are taking care of ourselves and it is crucial that we acknowledge the significance of mental illness and the impact it can have on our lives. I’m so excited to be joining Bristol Mind as an ambassador and I can’t wait to spread the word about this fantastic charity.”
Briony will be crucial for Bristol Mind in helping us raising awareness of our local services and by working with us on specific projects.
