The support staff are very calm, kind and genuine. They are insightful about my mental health issues and recovery. I feel heard and understood for the first time in a long time. I’m regaining my belief in myself and my strength and it’s beginning to make a big difference in my life. I hope to thrive not just survive and I’m confident Bath Mind is there for that journey in an important, essential and unique way.
