Help when you need it
Working with our community networks, we offer a range of one to one and outreach support projects to help people experiencing mental health problems to move forward in their recovery.
Our aim is to deliver recovery and wellbeing opportunities for people experiencing mental ill health and other support needs, so that they can achieve their hopes and ambitions.
We work individually to empower people to access the solutions they need for recovery, independence, and progression towards happy, healthy lives.
Wherever you are on your recovery journey, we’re here to help.
“I would recommend peer support work to others because it has really helped me pass a difficult part of my life. I learnt about strengths that I didn’t know or believed I had. I have taken away confidence and ways to continue to support myself and I am so grateful.”
NHS Rehab Peer Support Workers
Working with people leaving support from Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust’s Rehabilitation Service as well as other sources, Cornwall Mind provides adaptable and creative one to one and group support for people, helping them transition to independence.
The Peer Recovery Supporters use their own experience of recovery to inform their professional practice and work closely with the person, developing a strong bond of trust and supporting them to attend appointments and activities where needed.

Supported self-help is a free, 6-week guided programme. We give you the materials to understand and manage your feelings. And we call you regularly to give you support.
You don’t need a GP referral to sign up for supported self-help.
This is a one-to-one guided self-help service, not a counselling service. But our practitioners do use counselling based skills in their support. It incorporates some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) style tools but also provides other kinds of support.
Once you’ve signed up, we’ll get in touch to talk about the issues you’re dealing with. If supported self-help is right for you, together we’ll agree a programme of support. This can cover any of the following:
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Coping with grief and loss
- Loneliness and feeling lonely
- Low self esteem
- Low mood and depression
- Managing anger
- Managing stress
- Understanding menopause
Next Steps Homelessness Support
Cornwall Mind, Pentreath and Rethink Mental Illness are working together to provide the mental health and social wellbeing support element of this wider project to help people develop the resilience, resources and skills they need to transition out of homelessness.
With a focus on the Five Ways to Wellbeing, the Recovery Supporter provides practical advice and support to clients, supporting them to achieve and maintain a rich and meaningful life.
The aim is to deliver recovery and wellbeing opportunities for clients with mental ill health and other support needs, so that they can achieve their hopes and ambitions.

Next Steps – Funded by Cornwall Council
In partnership with Community Energy Plus, our Mental Wellbeing Caseworker works with people experiencing mental health difficulties and fuel poverty. Using a psycho-social model, they support people struggling with their mental health, empowering them to take control of their own recovery. The project provides whatever support is needed in order that people can engage with the actions in their wellbeing plan.
The primary objective of this project is to provide the support needed for participants to engage effectively with their energy advisor, with the aim of improving fuel poverty.

High Intensity User Service
Through the High Intensity User Service (HIU), caseworkers work one-to-one with frequent users of NHS services to help them access alternative support. Our friendly and approachable HIU Co-ordinators listen to the needs of the client, supporting them to find solutions to their issues.
Our aim is help to improve the client’s quality of life, support them to reconnect with their families and community, and help them to access more appropriate services in a less chaotic style.

This project provides an independent, supportive and solution focused forum for the Peer Support Workers embedded within NHS Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust. It provides liaison between the Peer Supervision Group and clinical teams, communicating challenges and solutions.
Cornwall Mind will also develop a reflective report to support and inform the development of Peer Support within the Trust for the future, and also work to develop capacity alongside the growth of Peer Support roles.
This project is for Peer Support Workers only.
