The Wellbeing & Mental Health Helpline was launched in August 1996 following a nationwide review of mental health services. The Helpline is a listening, information and emotional support service for those concerned about their own mental health, or that of someone they know. 


Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust was established in April 2002 and authorised as a Foundation Trust on 1st December 2007. The Trust provides health and wellbeing services for a population of around 1.5 million people throughout Lancashire. The services provided include: community nursing, health visiting and a range of therapy services such as physiotherapy and speech & language. Wellbeing services provided include smoking cessation and healthy lifestyle services. The Trust specialises in inpatient and community mental health services. Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust covers the whole of the county and employs around 7,000 members of staff across more than 400 sites and is a research-active Trust.
