We campaign to make your mental wellbeing a local priority.
We work across Lancashire for people at every level of mental health.
Through organised actions to bring about changes in policy, behaviour and culture we will achieve our vision of mental wellbeing for all. By providing training as part of workforce and student development, we will embed the challenging of misconceptions and promote mental health from a positive standpoint. We work collaboratively within communities utilising peer support and asset based approaches to overcome barriers to mental wellbeing, impacting behaviour change and achieving self care by promoting resilience skills.
Life can be challenging for everyone at times; for those of us living with poor mental wellbeing, life can be even tougher. Feeling good and functioning well is not set in stone. We sometimes need a little support to improve our happiness. As much as 40% of our happiness is accounted for by our daily actions and the conscious choices we make.
If you are aged 10 and over our Wellbeing Coaches can work with you, teaching you to make different choices to improve your mental wellbeing. Life should be more than just getting by, everyone should have the opportunity to live a healthy, happy lifestyle.
Our team of coaches work in a range of different settings, including GP’s surgeries, job centres and workplaces to help people feel happier and healthier by identifying lifestyle goals and the barriers that are preventing them from being reached. If you or someone you know is struggling, get in contact with us to see how we can help.
With the right support, everybody in Lancashire living with a mental health condition can have control of their own life. This includes support from the community and society as a whole, and may not necessarily mean a medical or clinical intervention. It is an individual’s responsibility not to define themselves by their mental health condition or to allow others to. It is society’s responsibility to ensure everyone experiencing a mental health condition gets support and respect.
Our tenancy management service provides access to accommodation and support to maintain a tenancy. To qualify for this service you must be over 18, however under 16’s can be taken on a licensing agreement. Currently available in Chorley, South Ribble and Preston, the service is run in partnership with housing associations and provides accommodation to people with a low level mental health condition. We welcome referrals from professionals, as well as individuals.
We are building resilience from an early age and work with children across the county through our Bounce Forward and Wellbeing Challenge programmes. With your support we aim to see similar programmes delivered to every child in Lancashire and embed the resilience model as an integral part of school life.
Bounce Forward is our resilience programme for children aged 9-11 years. Delivered in the classroom as a 12-week programme or on an individual basis, the programme has been delivered to over 400 9-11 year olds. Over 85% of pupils report increased resilience and mental wellbeing and 100% of students enjoy the course.
Grounded in asset based approaches and coproduction, the Wellbeing Challenge works with young people to help them identify the health and wellbeing needs of their school and wider community and supplies them with the training, skills and support they need to build and deliver initiatives delivered by young people for young people.
In the 2018-19 school year we’re piloting a Whole School Approach that aims to improve the wellbeing of the school community, encompassing pupils, teachers, non-teaching staff and parents/carers.
