Local leaders in mental health
We specialise in providing in-depth psychotherapeutic support, to make a difference to children, young people, and adults who are suffering mental health difficulties.
Help for adults and children
Our multidisciplinary team is equipped to support the mental health of children, young people, families, and adults from all backgrounds and experiences.
The Bridge has provided in-depth therapeutic expertise to over 10,000 individuals since 1983.
Help for schools
We partner with schools across the Bristol region to co-create a mental health service that embeds qualified and experienced therapists into whole school wellbeing, to bring positive results in areas of need.
Through Bridge in Schools, children and families see highly trained staff rarely to be found outside specialist NHS services or costly private clinics.
The Bridge supports professionals to manage work involving complex situations and vulnerabilities. We provide our rich clinical expertise through commissioned referrals, supervision and training, and well-attended conferences.
The Bridge’s conferences, training and clinical expertise are highly reputed throughout professional networks in the region and nationally.
