About us

We're an independent charity, based in Chorley and we work for the people of Lancashire. Our committed and energetic team of staff, trustees and volunteers are passionate about making a difference to the mental health of people living and working in Lancashire.

Main website:

We're working towards a Lancashire where:

  • We can all achieve good mental health and wellbeing

  • People living with a mental health condition get the right support when needed

  • We don't treat people differently because of their mental health

We see a future where everyone in Lancashire understands their mental health and wellbeing, see it as important as physical health and know how to look after it. We believe that only a universal approach, which gets everyone talking about and understanding mental health, will result in the achievement of Mental Wellbeing for All.

Lancashire Mind's work focuses on prevention. We support people of all ages to:

  • Learn about mental health and wellbeing

  • Understand and look after their own and each other's mental health

  • Take steps to maintain and improve their wellbeing

  • Increase their ability to cope when times get tough

  • Live independently in a safe and stable environment

We do this by:

Working with people of all ages to build resilience, wellbeing and knowledge of mental health We offer training to workplaces and members of the general public. We also work with children from an early age and in communities around Lancashire to increase awareness of mental health and the ways in which we can improve and maintain our wellbeing

Supporting people who are experiencing barriers to achieving good mental health We provide group and one-to-one coaching for people at risk of developing poor mental health, helping them to identify barriers or unhelpful behaviours, and to develop coping strategies through guided self help

Helping people to achieve and maintain recovery from poor mental health We provide housing and support for people with a mental health condition to return to independent living
