Off The Record (OTR)

Off the Record Bristol (OTR) is a mental health social movement by and for young people. The organisation provides mental health support and info to young people aged 11-25 across Bristol and South Gloucestershire.   OTR’s services are free, confidential, self-referral and provide a variety of support projects to combat mental and emotional health needs such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, OCD, abuse, eating disorders, family breakdown and substance abuse.   OTR works in schools, colleges and youth clubs to promote good mental health and provide tips and tricks to look after your wellbeing. One of OTR's projects is The Resilience Lab, a stress-busting group workshop which shares guidance on how to deal with life's ups and downs. OTR also provides specialist support for anyone identifying as LGBTQ+ and young people experiencing bullying, self-harm or wanting to campaign against mental health stigma.   OTR sees mental health much like physical health - it needs to be looked after and maintained. You can sign up for OTR's various services online at, or drop-in to one of OTR's hubs - an informal space to learn more about what we do and how to look after your mental health.   Follow OTR at, and
