People in Mind (PiM) is an innovative multi-agency collaboration to support people with mental ill-health in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly before they reach crisis point.
Citizens Advice Cornwall delivers specialist debt advice as part of the programme, ensuring people accessing the service can focus on improving their mental health free from financial worries.
The service is free, confidential and impartial delivered by experienced and qualified staff. It provides a holistic and tailored advice process, involving debt advice with mental health support and guidance, to meet clients’ needs.
Clients are allocated two advisers who work in tandem – one from Pentreath to support their mental health and one from Citizens Advice Cornwall to deal with their debt and financial issues. The programme of support lasts 16 weeks and the client is then helped to access other services they might need to help them move forward with their lives, when the debt advice process is complete.
