North Somerset Mental Health Employment Service

We work alongside the services that make up Bristol Mental Health Services, and also work across North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. 

This service is free, impartial and confidential

Who can we help?

Anyone who:

  • has a mental health support need or condition
  • is over 18
  • wants to find or stay in employment
  • lives within the Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire boundaries – or has a GP in any of those areas.

If you’ve been off work due to your mental health and want to get back into employment, we can help you to do this in a way that’s good for your wellbeing.

If you’re experiencing a mental health problem such as stress, anxiety, depression or other conditions such as bi-polar we can support you to stay in work.

We also work with employers to raise their awareness about mental health in the workplace and what they can do to support their employees.
