Stepping Forward

Stepping Forward can support you if you live in Peterborough or Fenland and have a formal diagnosis of Personality Disorder, Psychosis or a type of Affective Disorder such as; Anxiety, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Bipolar Disorder. It is a user-led and person-centred service that supports you to step away from secondary services.

We also offer peer-led Hearing Voices Group as part of this service – please click here for more information

Individuals can self-refer to this service in addition to referrals from community mental health teams and GP’s.  We work closely with The Recovery Coach Team and Recovery College East to deliver services across Peterborough and Fenland including Wisbech and March.

Please note that we are experiencing a high demand for our Wellbeing and Stepping Forward services at the moment and, regrettably, are unable to accept new referrals into these services right now.

We recognise how difficult this may be but there may be other organisations that can support you for now. Other local services that can provide support may be found at

Do please return to our site occasionally, as this is where we will give any updates.

Referrals into our Changing Lives Counselling and CBT services continue to be taken as usual.

The NHS First Response Service (FRS) for those in mental health crisis is available 24 hours a day and can be contacted by dialling 111, Option 2. For other emergency contacts, please visit our Need Help Now page.
