Vital 2018

Vital (previously Bradford and Airedale Mental Health Advocacy) was established nearly 30 years ago by a group of mental health patients on acute wards who started to support each other and provide a voice for things that some of them had struggled to say. It has transformed into an advocacy support charity for those experiencing episodes of poor mental health or vulnerability due to other factors, including older age, trauma and illness.
