We welcome adults (anyone over the age of 18) suffering from a range of problems such as depression, stress, anxiety, bipolar disorder, social anxiety, personality disorders, self-harming, low self-esteem, mood swings or loneliness, to name just a few. If you are suffering from any form of mental distress, and are able to converse with people, you are welcome to attend our meetings. Nobody needs to speak until they are ready but everyone will be given the opportunity if they want to talk over their challenges and the group members can offer their advice and support based on what they know works for them.
All our meetings are run by trained volunteers who have their own experience of mental distress. The meetings have a structure that the volunteers will help the group to stick to but they are also quite informal and friendly. There's plenty of time to get to know the other members over a cup of tea and once you join the Changes community you'll be able to access social events that the members organise themselves.
You do not require a referral from your GP or an assessment. You don't need to book a space - you can just turn up on the day and you will be made very welcome by the volunteers and the other group members. Feel free to call us at the office if you would like to speak to a friendly voice before coming along.
Our service is not an alternative to other treatments but is there to complement many of the other services provided by statutory bodies. You can come to Changes meetings for as many meetings as you like and they are free, although we do have a donations pot at each group if you'd like to drop in a small contribution.

The Community Church is a vibrant community of around 200 adults and 120 children. We seek to be open, modern, relevant and, above all, authentic in our approach to church and faith.
The church, which used to be called 'Henleaze & Westbury Community Church' meets every Sunday morning at 10.30am at the Greenway Centre in Southmead. Coffee is served before the service, so do come along 10 minutes early and have a drink! For mid-week activities we still use our building on the border of Henleaze and Westbury. We're also part of 'Churches Together in the Westbury Area' and meet regularly with the leaders of the churches in Southmead.
Pastors: Dave Roderick firstname.lastname@example.org Tim Dobson email@example.com.
Sundays at 10.30.

We provide a free service which provides patients with extra services and support within the community. This involves exploring what is important to you, identifying local activities, groups and services that you can benefit from and then giving you the encouragement and practical support that you may need to access these. This may include things like creative activities, physical activities, counselling support, social activities, learning opportunities, training, employment or housing and money support – amongst many other things! There is also the opportunity to receive mentoring support should you and I feel that this would be beneficial to you.
