The Bristol Mind BME Advocacy Service will provide inpatient and community based advocacy to people from Black and/or Minority Ethnic communities. The service is specifically aimed at people from BME communities who are experiencing severe and enduring mental/emotional distress.
The general aim of the service is to provide culturally appropriate high quality, issue based, outcome focused advocacy. Specific to secondary care mental health, the service will provide advocacy to people in psychiatric hospital (inpatients) across Bristol, this includes people placed in Fromeside (medium secure unit) and Wickham (low secure unit.)
The service will also provide an advocacy service to people in the community in order to go some way to prevent admissions and re-admissions to hospital.
The service can be contacted directly on 0117 9800389
