The Human Health Library

We use books to provide us with stories, but what about the human stories of the people of Bristol? At Southmead Library on Monday 17th October 10.30-12.30, you can check out an individual rather than a book and hear a real life story of how that individual has achieved health and happiness.

The event will be hosted by Golden Key Peer Mentoring, in association with Bristol Libraries. Golden Key Peer Mentors are individuals who have experienced homelessness, mental health issues, offending or substance misuse. They have achieved recovery by focusing on their own health, connecting with others and being honest and open about their journey. Be inspired by connecting with Bristol’s diverse community and learn how your own health can be improved by harnessing your own story.

FREE EVENT – Please book here (tickets will also be available on the door). Find out more about Golden Key here.  The concept of a ‘Healthy City Week’ emerged from voluntary members of the Bristol Green Capital Partnership’s Health and Wellbeing Group, as an opportunity to showcase local sustainability and healthcare initiatives during Bristol’s year as European Green Capital.
