To create a positive focus for those experiencing mental health difficulties and their support networks, with frugal innovations to make a BRIGHTer future for all.
Bright supports service users and staff. We believe that part of this support is to discover and disseminate the fantastic practice that already exists in mental health care. We do this by:
• Creating networks
• Publishing positive and motivational newsletters
• Finding and disseminating replicable examples of good practice.
Since 2004, Bright has created a range of high quality, funky, user friendly resources to help improve mental health care.
Bright is now providing a bespoke service to organisations wanting to improve their acute mental health care.
Bright can also assist in the production and dissemination of good practice within organisations, help you to develop mental health resources of your own, or just cheer you on while you make a positive contribution to mental health.
