Wellbeing support in Cambridgeshire

Local support

Cambridge Mind has the following support for people uneasy during this period:

  • Lifeline Plus is a new helpline for adults in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. Trained staff can discuss issues affecting mood and wellbeing during this time, or signpost to other sources of support. Call Monday to Friday, 9am-2pm, on 0808 808 2121.

  • Qwell is an online community for adults in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. You can find self-help resources and join in peer support through chat. You can also access safe and confidential one-hour sessions with a fully qualified counsellor via instant messaging.

  • As part of the Good Life Service, there are a number of community initiatives aimed at encouraging community connectivity and increasing wellbeing skills. These ordinarily take place in cafes and other locations at the heart of our communities. Good Mood cafes are informal ‘get togethers’ designed to connect individuals to other like-minded people within their communities; offer wellbeing support and share interests and skills. These are now being brought directly to clients using Zoom video calls. Anyone can sign up to join the virtual sessions detailed below by emailing goodlife@cpslmind.org.uk or calling 0300 303 4363.

  • The Sanctuary service remains open for dedicated telephone support for those in mental health crisis and is only accessed via the NHS First response Service on telephone 111 option 2.
