About

Every week, 1 in 6 adults experiences a common mental health problem, such as anxiety or depression and 1 in 5 adults have considered taking their own life at some point.

We need to take mental illness more seriously.

This is where ECBC comes in.

ECBC Manchester was founded early April 2018 after a few glasses of wine and an ambition to help tackle loneliness and isolation, and raise awareness of mental health illnesses. As the wine was involved we’re not really 100% sure what ECBC stands for, but we know that it was created for mental health awareness.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We have numerous helpful resources, contacts and advice on our blog on how to help with your mental illness. Each member of the ECBC team has experienced a mental illness and understands what you are going through. Not only that, we want to help.

The first step is to reach out. We are here, we are listening, we are ECBC.
