Our CEO, Raymond Sheehy, gets the public acquainted with Bridge:

“The name ‘Bridge’ has its origins in the need for people with mental health problems to be supported once they leave hospital. This service is a ‘bridge’ between people leaving hospital and re‑establishing themselves safely in the community. Our referrals come from low- and medium-secure hospitals, community mental health teams and, increasingly, from people referring themselves, drawing on the personal budget that is allocated to them by the local authority.”


This report will give you an overview of our present, past and future:

  • Founded in South East London almost 30 years ago

  • A charitable organisation and leading provider of mental health support services

  • In the past 3 years, its forensic service has expanded from 11 to 18 residents and it has secured new contracts for intensive and medium support

  • It has established a clear, proven pathway for people with long-term mental health problems to live well in the community

  • Runs a unique Recovery College in the heart of the community

  • Skilled and dedicated staff with expertise in recovery support


“I have been ill since 1989. In that time I’ve received invaluable support from Bridge. Seeing support workers regularly and talking about my problems helps me manage and I’m doing well”.

John – Self-Referral
