We are lucky in Cambridge to have a few quality organisations who are able to provide support and advice to those of us affected by mental ill health.

I am in the process of tracking down the contact details and relevant information to post here. If you know of any organisations you think should be listed here or represent one, then please feel free to add them!

I've been compiling a similar list for a social anxiety forum I'm a member of. If you don't mind me copy/pasting it here, you can take the bits you want from it :)

NHS- South Cambs
My experience – referred to Mental Health Dept. by doctor, had counselling sessions at surgery whilst on waiting list, waited about two months for assessment, one month later had six sessions of assisted therapy at the surgery with a psychologist, which incorporated elements of CBT, and was given a useful booklet.

ARU students
http://www.anglia.ac.uk/ruskin/en/home/central/studentsupport/services/counselling/cambridge.html
ARU offers counselling to its students, details are available on their website. They also have a good selection of leaflets and pamphlets available regarding a range of different subjects, including SA, and procrastination. Their website lists books and CD’s which are available to borrow, useful web links, and other sources of help – some local, some national.

Cambridge University Students and staff
Counselling services website:
http://www.counselling.cam.ac.uk/
Offers similar services to ARU. Also has a peer support network, cognitive behaviour therapy groups, and counselling groups.

Cambridge Group Therapy centre
http://www.grouptherapycambridge.org.uk/

They offer the following therapies:
Arts therapies
Group Analysis
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Schema Focused Therapy
Gestalt (body/mind)
Family Systems & Trauma therapy

Fees are on a sliding scale. “Before joining a group you’ll be seen individually by a qualified therapist who’ll listen to you and help you decide whether group therapy is right for you” They hold daytime and evening sessions in Cambridge city, and daytime sessions in Bar Hill and Sawston.
