People with mental health conditions have been stigmatised for many years.
Many have seen fit to take their own lives!
As we have learnt more about mental health we have all realised that people are on a spectrum from challenged to genius.
But many try and learn to manage their conditions, harness their creativity, focus their energy and contribute to the society that is around them. The people and compoanies mentioned on this page have all helped the directors, employees and voluteers of Bubble Enterprises CIC to understand how we may contribute to them on their lifes journey.
Bubble strives to create the interactive Playbooks, Projects, Connections and Platforms that will provide these often inspiring individuals the tools to suceed.
However and wherever they choose to.
