We are a local mental health charity that provides services across Carlisle, Eden and countywide. As such we rely on grants, fundraising income and donations. Also, we raise money from our training delivery and through our shops. 

This has all but stopped. Our shops can no longer open, our fundraisers can no longer hold events and our open training courses can no longer take place.  In many cases, our funding grants have been stopped or placed on hold, with money now understandably being directed to COVID-19 response activity only.  We are determined that the services we provide will continue to be a source of support now and in the future as we all come through this part of the crisis together.

The lack of funding will likely leave us in a very difficult position about how and what services we will be able to continue to run in the future.  

We are calling on you to help us

We understand COVID-19 has had a huge impact on everyone’s lives.  Now more than ever we need to ensure people will continue to have the support, information and guidance they need when it comes to their mental wellbeing.

If you can, please donate to us  

1 in 4 adults currently will experience some type of mental health problem in their lifetime, with 1 in 10 children and young people also experiencing a mental health problem.  We expect these numbers will rise over the coming months and we are committed to being here now and in the future for anyone facing a mental health problem. We are determined that nobody should have to face these problems alone.

£10 will cover a 45-minute webchat or call to our countywide 365 days a year Mindline service.

£20 will enable someone who has been through the mental health system, to meet with others to share experiences and support each other.

£30 will enable us to offer a safe space, a 1-1 meeting, a listening ear and support going forward with information and resources to take away.

As a local Mind, we rely heavily on the kindness of people who donate to us. This enables us to continue offering services in the local community and develop new services to meet emerging demands.
