Charity expands its services to Boston


Mental health charity Mind is to expand its free services to incorporate the Boston area after being handed grant funding.

Mind offers support to individuals who are experiencing mental health issues including depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, confidence, eating disorders and more.

Services are currently being delivered elsewhere in the county – but as a result of a successful funding bid awarded by Lloyds Bank Foundation, support can now be offered to anyone living in the Boston area aged 18 to 65, through one-to-one sessions.

A spokesman for the charity said: “Anyone can experience episodes of poor mental health as a result of life experiences, for example divorce, death, abuse and as a result are typically vulnerable and can feel isolated. South Lincolnshire Mind works to empower individuals to tackle any challenge they may face and support them as they work towards their objectives.”

A spokesman from the Lloyds Bank Foundation said: ‘The Lloyds Bank Foundation supports people to break out of disadvantage at critical points in their lives. South Lincolnshire Mind provides a vital service and we are proud to award them this grant.”

Emily Gray, CEO of Peterborough and Fenland Mind, said: “We are extremely grateful to Lloyds Bank Foundation for enabling us to ensure we can deliver our services to a new community.”
