Next wave of mental health promotion fund available

Organisations and groups that support and help people manage their mental health and wellbeing are being invited to pitch for a share of £300,000 community funding.
 
Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) and Lincolnshire County Council have announced the latest round of their Mental Health Promotion Fund.
 
The fund aims to help adults who have experienced mental health problems to participate in a wide range of activities that will help them to recover and maintain as good a quality of life as possible.
 
It also allows local people of all ages to play an active role in promoting good mental health for themselves and others and this year includes funding to support dementia groups whose aim is improve the mental health of those living with dementia.
 
Projects that ultimately receive funding will all join LPFT’s innovative Managed Care Network, a collection of community groups which offer support and various activities to help keep people living well in the community.
 
And this year the application process has been streamlined to make it even easier for interested parties to get their bids in.
 
The next deadline for application is 5pm on Thursday 8 June 2017.
