Carlisle Eden Mind
Carlisle Eden Mind is a local charity, affiliated to Mind, supporting people with mental health problems across the Carlisle and Eden districts. We provide a range of services including advocacy, crisis support, return to work and others, directly supporting over 500 people a year. We offer telephone and text based Mental Health information, guidance and support to over 2,500 people a year across the county through MindLine Cumbria and have increasingly worked with young people and school aged children through development of specialist advocacy services and most recently through delivery of mental health awareness training and peer support programmes across secondary schools in the Carlisle and Barrow areas, training over 1,200 14/15 year olds during 2015/16.
We are the Counties main provider of mental health related training, delivering accredited and bespoke training to a wide variety of third sector, public and private customers, including a range of local employers on development of workplace wellbeing and management of mental health in the workplace. In the last 5 years we have trained over 5,000 individuals from across 150 different organisations. We also lead on the counties suicide prevention programme, training over 3,000 people across Cumbria in suicide alertness and intervention skills.
Carlisle Eden Mind actively works to combat the stigma surrounding mental health issues through a range of projects and media engagement and seeks to ensure that the voice of people with mental health problems is heard in the development of local services.
We’re Mind, the mental health charity. We believe no one should have to face a mental health problem alone. We’re here for you. Today. Now. We’re on your doorstep, on the end of a phone or online. Whether you’re stressed, depressed or in crisis. We’ll listen, give you support and advice and fight your corner.
