Project WalktoTalk Bristol aims to bring communities together in a positive way surrounding mental health, raise awareness and make mental health a conversation. Just as we all have physical health, we all experience mental health too. Every single one of us.
The overarching goal is that these walks make people talk about mental health, often without even realising they have.
“I was talking to a complete stranger about things I wouldn’t even talk to my close friends about. It was then that I realized how effective this walk had actually become”
You don’t have to had experience with mental ill-health in order to take part. Supporting the mental health of ourselves, our friends and a whole community is most effective when everyone gets involved.
Circuit walk of Bristol starting/finishing at College Green and taking participants on a tour of the city including Ashton Court, Clifton Suspension Bridge, Clifton Down, Wills Memorial Building and Gloucester Road. We are really keen for volunteers to engage with the participants and to initiate conversations surrounding mental health.
There will be 2 routes in operation – the 13.3 miles full route and a 6 mile short route.
Participants and volunteers will be provided with full route details and are encouraged to navigate themselves around the course.
1) 08:00 am – 17:00 pm (full day)
2) 10:00am – 19:00 pm (fully day)
3) 11:15 am – 16:00 pm (half day)
Volunteers are expected to attend a 45 minute pre-event brief covering health and safety and key event details as well as attending a short safety brief on the day. Volunteer roles will also be assigned before the day, some volunteers will be assisting the Event Mangers and Checkpoint Managers so will not have a specific assigned location. Volunteers will be rotated around the checkpoints throughout the day.
