Summary of report content

Healthwatch Bristol worked with BACWG with the aim to amplifying the voice of the Chinese community outcomes by holding an event for their service users and families to enjoy, to find out which services and activities they use to keep emotionally well. Healthwatch Bristol facilitated two workshops discussing emotional health and wellbeing. Two interpreters were available to translate and help break down language barriers. The event was very well attended with 71 people participating in Healthwatch Bristol emotional health and wellbeing survey. This report articulated well the importance of community groups, people socialising and overcoming isolation through attending local services and participating in regular exercise helped people feel emotionally well. Healthwatch Bristol found out which health services people accessed to help them with both their physical and mental health. The report indicated to one recommendation which states, the lack of interpreting services available.
