Support

YOOOOOOOOOOO!

Here’s a wee page I’ve put together of charities/services that can help you in regards to mental health issues and sexual assault. This’ll be constantly updated as I do more research and have my allies from across the globe help me out. If there’s a service you can suggest I’d love to hear about it – just pop me a message and I’ll credit your socials down below! 🙂 ♥♥

Bristol, UK

  • Missing Link/Next Link – support for female survivors of domestic abuse/sexual assault/rape. I personally recommend them. Very anxious little me went to a support group there (I don’t do socialising) but I came away so much more educated and with a group of new pals! You also can get allocated a support worker.
  • The Sanctuary – a safe place for those struggling with their mental health, open evenings/nights, offers lots of different therapies.
  • Bristol Men’s Crisis House – a safe place for males with mental health issues, admission available for up to a month, again lots of different therapies available.
  • Womankind – again another one I recommend! One on one and group counselling available for females affected by depression/domestic/sexual abuse.
  • Bristol Wellbeing Therapies – offers a range of therapies and courses to help with depression/anxiety/stress and the things related to it.
  • The Greenhouse – counselling for those affected by sexual abuse/rape.
  • SARSAS – helpline, online support, group work and counselling for those affected by sexual abuse/rape/trafficking and their families/friends. Definitely recommend this one!
