Mental Health Hub
A new vision to support people long before they reach crisis point
It is normal for people to feel over-whelmed or anxious, especially when they are facing life changing situations such as a relationship breakdown, unemployment, homelessness, addiction, or the death of a loved one.
Often people don’t seek support early enough and find themselves reaching crisis point, resulting in involvement from the emergency services.
A key factor for people not seeking support is that it can be hard to know where to go for help, especially if they are feeling overwhelmed and anxious.
Since 2017, local partners have been working together to develop an exciting new vision to support people long before they reach crisis point. It was from this that the concept for the [mental health] hub was born.
Partners include Lincolnshire's NHS, county council (housing and public health), district councils, police, prisons, probation service, job centre, universities, and various voluntary sector organisations including Addaction, Carers FIRST, Active Faith Network, YMCA, and P3 to name but a few.

We need your support
We are now looking for your help to develop our vision for the hub further.
We want to involve more local organisations who provide much needed care and support for people who are facing life changing situations. To find out more please contact Margaret Sharman at Margaret.Sharman@LPFT.nhs.uk.
We also want to involve people who have experienced life changing situations first hand and know what care and support helped them, or what they felt was lacking. To express an interest please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
