Anyone experiencing problems with finances, debt, housing and mental wellbeing can access support and receive advice and guidance from The Mental Health, Employment Need and Debt advice outreach project (‘Mhend’). 

Mhend is a new partnership between Pentreath Mental Health Advisers and Citizens Advice Cornwall (CAC) caseworkers. They can provide specialist financial, employment and mental health support to vulnerable individuals adversely affected by Covid-19 across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. 

For example, individuals will be offered a plan for the debt management as well as supporting their mental health with wellbeing activities and signposting to services that can help them move forward in their recovery through health and vocational pathways. 

Due to the impacts of Covid-19, this support will be offered in alternative formats (via face to face, telephone and digital channels including web chat).  

You can make a referral by contacting Pentreath (01726 862727) or by completing the referral form available on the Pentreath website.  Please specify the referral is for the Mhend Project.

For further mental heath support, see the Cornwall Council MH information page, or the VSF MH information page.
