We are reviewing mental health and wellbeing social support in Cornwall and we want to hear your views.

Social support services in Cornwall help people to improve their mental health and wellbeing. This is not about medication or specialist NHS services or therapies.

Social support is provided by voluntary and community organisations and can help you to:

  • Manage your mental health and wellbeing,
  • Develop the skills you need to live independently,
  • Access employment, education and training,
  • Link to activities in your local community,
  • Prevent crisis and support you in crisis.

if you have any ideas how we can shape the above services to inform the future provision, just let us know. You can also complete our survey and attend workshops, find more information on our website:


Idea #1. Added by Healthwatch Cornwall | 3 months ago

The New Mental Health Safety Plans are now available from Cornwall Health and Social Care.
A Mental Health Safety Plan is a preventative tool designed to help support those who struggle with mental wellbeing. It may be difficult to think clearly when you’re feeling really low, or feel incredibly overwhelmed, and it may be difficult to ignore these feelings. Safety plans are best created when not in crisis.

By having a safety plan, you’re making sure that there are strategies you can use to keep yourself safe and can help you feel more in control when everything feels out of control. Think of your safety plan as your ‘mental health first-aid kit’; it includes different things that will help you through a crisis.
You can download the plans at
