CPSL Mind Open Door - Calm Space

University Good Life project

Student wellbeing

"Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire Mind (CPSL Mind) Good Life project opened in Cambridge.

ERA News last February (Cantab Health Meeting) described an initiative bringing together regional healthcare professionals, voluntary organisations and local communities such as Eddington to form the Cantab Integrated Neighbourhood. The aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of the community by sharing resources and harnessing the voluntary sectors.

Part of this initiative, the University Good Life project, has just gone live in Cambridge. It is a partnership between CPSL Mind, the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University bringing mental health support in the form of Good Mood Cafés, Open Door calm spaces and information sessions.

The project brings Good Mood Cafes and Open Door calm spaces online each week via Zoom. Sessions are aimed at supporting students, studying in Cambridge, to build social connections with other students, identify skills and passions to help improve individual wellbeing, learn self-help techniques and get access to further support if needed.

Virtual Good Mood Cafes
"It’s OK not to be OK, so you don’t have to be in a good mood to come along to our online Good Mood Cafes – but we hope everyone will leave feeling better than when they joined."

Virtual Open Door calm spaces
These sessions offer guidance on self-help techniques which can help you to ‘ground yourself’ and feel better both in that moment and in the future.

Session times and information on how to sign up are on the University Good Life page or download this leaflet for further information.

The project is also seeking volunteers from the student community to learn new skill and help fellow students improve their wellbeing.
