Plymouth & District Mind Association is a mental health charity, formed in 1984 and covers the areas of Plymouth, South Hams, North Cornwall and Caradon. We operate from two buildings adjoined by a garden. Nearby is Freedom Fields Park, where we have a community cafe – The Cafe In The Park (recently landscaped and refurbished through the Heritage Fund) – run by volunteers. Our Oasis Day Centre is run by our service user peer mentor support team who provide a safe, welcoming environment for those with mental health problems.
Our Recovery College operates from the Woodside building. Our IT SUITE is located in the Parkside Building, helping people access the internet. Our Job Coaches and Employer Liaison Offi cer, within the IMPRESS project, helped us support both employer and employee in addressing stress in the workplace and promoting sustainful employment.
