South Lakeland Mind
South Lakeland Mind (SLM) is the main provider of counselling and peer support for people suffering or recovering from mental health issues in the South Cumbria region. SLM provides one-to-one counselling, weekly volunteer-led drop-in groups and wellness activities. These include arts and crafts, guided walks and mindfulness training. In 2017, over 400 people used SLM’s service, with clients reporting an astounding 100% positive impact. A grant from The Fore will enable South Lakeland to develop new earned income streams in a declining grant funding environment. This will transform South Lakeland to develop new community and professional services.
