Women’s Health

Women’s Mental Health

Bristol Women’s Voice is an advocate for the health of women and girls in our city. We are raising the profile of women’s specific health issues and believe a gendered approach to all aspects of health must be taken by our city’s leaders. We are currently focusing on mental health and well-being and running a series of sessions with women and girls around the city.

Our women’s health sessions involve community groups and provide an opportunity for women to voice their concerns and learn more about their individual needs. Bristol Women’s Voice also links women to organisations that can best support them.

Black Women Pause

In partnership with Nilaari, ReThink and CASS Bristol we have been running online peer support sessions for Black, Asian and minoritized women to promote emotional well-being and to share self-help tips and information.

 

Recognising the Signs and Busting the Stigma Around Women’s Mental Health

Alongside Changes we are hosting workshops on women’s mental health to bust some myths around how mental health is understood and stigmatised and suggest how gender can create specific challenges for mental health. The global pandemic has also exacerbated mental health concerns for many creating more isolation and anxiety with women finding it difficult to cope or wanting to learn more about how to help others who may be struggling.

Our women’s health sessions involve other local community groups and provide an opportunity for women to voice their concerns and learn more about their individual needs as well as find out about the organisations that can best support them. Download the leaflet  here.

In summer 2019 Bristol Women’s Voice launched the City Listening Project supported by the Government Equalities Office (GEO) to ensure the voices of women, particularly those that frequently go unheard, contribute to better policy-making. The GEO was particularly keen to hear from women facing multiple barriers including those in low paid employment, BAME women and disabled women. The City Listening Project report is available and can be found here.
