Lifeline Plus Launches in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough

Lifeline Plus is a new helpline for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough providing a listening ear, to discuss issues affecting mood & wellbeing especially during this time.

The line is available Monday to Friday, 9am-2pm (excluding Bank Holidays) by calling 0808 808 2121.

We can help address issues around feeling isolated, lonely and for mild to moderate anxiety and low mood. We can support you to find self-help or signpost to other partners for particular concerns; about caring for others, parents or bereavement for example. The line is open to adults 18+.

Your call will be answered by trained professionals from CPSL Mind or local NHS mental health services, supported by a wide range of organisations and charities that have specific or specialist knowledge.

To provide the best possible service you will be asked for a few personal details, these are stored securely and only shared with a partner organisation to get the support you need. If so, we will always let you know what we want to share and with whom –  and will ask your permission to do so.

Lifeline Plus complements the existing Lifeline helpline. Lifeline has been run by Lifecraft for more than twenty years, providing confidential support for those in mental health distress. In response to the pandemic, it has extended its hours to between 2pm and 11pm, seven days a week. For more information see www.lifecraft.org.uk
