Lancashire Mind - We are more than a mental health charity; we’re a passionate movement leading
the mental wellbeing revolution in Lancashire. Our vision is mental wellbeing for all because a person
with high mental wellbeing is more likely to be happier, healthier, more resilient and less likely to
develop mental health conditions only a small minority of people live with a mental health condition
that has a long term substantial impact on their life. In 2013 this was less than one percent of the
population. With appropriate support a mental health condition can have a minimal impact on a
person’s life. Appropriate support includes things society does that allow a person to operate as an
equal and they are not necessarily formal or clinical.
