No. "provide Peace of Mind" is not correct because peace of mind is not a proper noun.

It would be perfectly fine (and common too) to say "provide/ensure peace of mind."

A couple of examples of how the phrase can be used correctly might be of help:

Purchasing vacation insurance can provide you with peace of mind, especially if you have a heart attack in a foreign country!

"We at the Serenity Health Spa are proud to provide you with peace of mind, if only for a few short hours."

At age 40, Sally decided to switch careers from a high-pressure executive sales job to a low-pressure sales clerk job, if only to provide herself with a little peace of mind.
