CopingCoping

Everyone has mental health, just like we have physical health, and we all go through ups and downs. If you are finding things tough at the moment, here are some of the ways we can support you.

Peer support

We currently run a range of Peer Support Groups across the county including for individuals experiencing symptoms associated with Personality Disorders.

There are also four Hearing Voices Peer Support Groups as part of the local Hearing Voices Network and Five Ways to Wellbeing Peer Support groups to encourage positive wellbeing.

For details, please click here.

Peer support is a growing area of the Good Life Service. If you would like to get involved in developing a peer support activity in your area, please email goodlife@cpslmind.org.uk.

Open Door calm spaces

Everyone feels overwhelmed at times and our Open Door calm spaces provide somewhere to go if you need a bit of space and tranquillity.

These sessions also offer guidance on self-help techniques which can help you to ‘ground yourself’ and feel better  both in that moment and in the future.

Please click here for details of an Open Door calm space near you.

Good Mood cafes

Our weekly Good Mood Cafes offer informal wellbeing support, while connecting you to others within your community. They offer a positive space to  share interests, skills or experiences and access wellbeing-related information.

It’s OK not to be OK so you don’t have to be in a good mood when you come to a Good Mood Cafe, but we hope you will feel in a better mood by the time you leave.
