Let’s make Lancashire the beacon county for mental wellbeing.
There’s a lot of good work going on that you can support and promote.
By leading the charge in challenging societies views of mental health and promoting mental wellbeing we can decrease peoples risk of developing a mental health condition. Through collaboration and innovation we can develop and nurture new ways of working to ensure everyone is treated with the respect they deserve and can be a full and active member of their local community and an equal in society.
Prevention is the solution. We welcome the statements made by the Prime Minster in her speech about transforming mental health support; specifically the promise of a substantial increase of prevention work in schools and workplaces. These are areas that Lancashire Mind has already identified as priorities if we are to achieve our vision.
Our CEO, Stewart Lucas, joins national Mind’s CEO, Paul Farmer, in urging the Government to ensure that mental health becomes a priority for decades to come. Further details and the full statement from Paul Farmer can be found on Mind’s website.
