Mind in Bradford’s client-led newsletter spreading news and views on mental health and wellbeing.
It’s a mixture of news about Mind in Bradford, articles on mental health, tips on wellbeing and creative writing pieces by our talented clients. Our aim is to address the stigma surrounding mental health and create a safe space to share stories.
Our next edition will be published on Friday 12 August to mark International Youth Day, and the focus for this issue will be children and young people’s mental health. Please send your submissions to [email protected] by Monday 18 July.
