About Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire Mind
Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire Mind (CPSL Mind) is a values-based, county-wide mental health charity.
Everything we do is underpinned by our core values of respect, empowerment, inclusivity, integrity, courage and compassion. We support local people on their road to recovery from a wide range of mental health challenges.
We promote positive wellbeing across our communities and we campaign against the stigma & discrimination faced by so many people experiencing mental health challenges.
To see the impact we’re making in our community read our latest Impact Report (2018-19).
We’ve been responding to the mental health needs of local people for more than a century. Our longevity comes from the fact that we have learnt from experience, moved with the times, developed our expertise and dared to innovate.
Our strategy (2019-2021) builds on our strengths and is the start of a new journey which has people living with mental health problems, together with their friends and family, at its very heart.

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.
We have been awarded the Mind Quality Mark (MQM). The MQM is a robust quality assurance framework created by Mind, the mental health charity. MQM sets out the baseline of best practice and legal compliance in all areas of a local Mind’s governance and activities. To achieve the MQM, we must meet or exceed all 24 key standards.
We undergo a rigorous assessment which includes a thorough appraisal of organisational policies and procedures as well as a visit and interviews with trustees, staff, volunteers and people who use services. MQM is awarded when all standards are fully met.
The MQM provides assurance that local Minds across England and Wales are well-run organisations who meet Mind’s expectations of good practice, and in many cases excel beyond those expectations. It provides assurance that they are healthy, ambitious and strong in providing the highest quality support to people experiencing or at risk of developing mental health problems.
