Mental Health

Our support staff are not registered professional mental health carers, but we can help you by providing initial support and guidance as well as signposting you to further relevant support, including confidential medical referrals.

“There are a lot of support networks out there. If you feel there are issues then talk, don’t be scared to talk. Bottling it up makes it worse. The BAC are incredible. We’ve got mental health advisers. Loads of people are talking about mental health now and the support system is getting better.”
