What Is PorthEden?

PorthEden is a community interest company pioneering a community-based crisis response to mental health in Cornwall.

We opened the first mental health crisis café in Cornwall in May 2016, and are continuing to extend this model throughout the county.

We exist to prevent, respond to and support people through mental health crises.

We support and empower each other to do the best we can, when things get difficult, with relevant and long-lasting outcomes.

Together, we are creating a network of outreach support service points, crises cafes’ and other services across Cornwall and we need your help.

We believe that every life is important and that no-one should face life’s problems alone.

We offer support, space and time to talk, so that together we can help you to move forward, make improvements and move ahead with your mental well being.  

Our drop-in service is open to any member of the public, concerned family, friends or relatives can attend and talk over any problems or concerns with trained staff and volunteers who are on hand to provide support, information, advice and guidance along with complimentary tea/coffee and biscuits.

We’re continually developing our services and expanding our network to meet the needs of our clients.

Please do contact us if you’d like to discuss our services further.

Thank you for your interest in PorthEden.
