Did you know that 1 in 4 people will experience poor mental health during their lifetime?

Mental health includes a wide range of conditions such as depression, eating disorders, low self-esteem, chronic stress and anxiety as well as psychosis, personality disorder and bipolar disorder. We all experience low or high periods of mental health during our lifetime and may need extra support to cope with this.

Peterborough and Fenland Mind understand the importance of having a listening ear and can support people to cope with the stresses of daily life by offering up to twelve one to one sessions working on areas such as coping strategies, managing anxiety, improving social and living skills and support with working towards individual goals. We also offer group work in the form of workshops such as building self-esteem and confidence, addictive behaviours and managing your mental health.

Peterborough and Fenland Mind believes in the importance of preventing poor mental health and can help people who do not qualify for NHS statutory services or people who have been discharged. We can offer support to people who have never received help for their mental health or do not have a diagnosis and those who have suffer poor mental health for a number of years.

Due to funding by The Mental Illness Prevention Fund, we are able to offer our services in Bourne, Stamford and Spalding and referrals can be made by simply picking up the phone so to find out more about how we can help today, call 01733 530650 or email Holly.black@pfmind.org.uk
