Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire Mind (CPSL Mind) is a values-based, county-wide mental health charity. CPSL Mind has adopted national Mind’s values and principles and is committed to providing quality services that anticipate, meet and exceed the needs of service users, workers and stakeholders
Like many other organisations we have reorganised ourselves in response to the coronavirus (Covid-19). We are following Government guidance to protect our staff, volunteers and those we support and to slow the spread of the virus.
In doing this we remain committed to supporting our clients with mental health needs, wider community mental health concerns, our partners and others as best we can during this period of uncertainty.
If you are in crisis or are worried about someone who you think may be in trouble you will find information on where you can turn on our page for those who Need Help Now.

We understand that changes and confinement will impact on everyone and raise particular concerns around mental health. Right now we are working with other organisations to establish a joint response that makes the very best use of all our available resources for the benefit of our communities. We are also exploring ways we might ‘virtually’ reintroduce some Good Life community activities; Good Mood cafes, Open Door calm spaces, Peer Support Groups and sharing knowledge to help others to support their own feelings and find ways to stay connected. We remain keen to be a collaborative partner and continue close working with others so all of our resources can be used as effectively as possible, across services, charities and community. We will be updating our information on our website regularly, detail of services and current adjustments and how to contact us if concerned.
