Supporting Mental Health and Well-Being
The mental health and well-being of the people in our area is important to us. We are committed to making a real difference to people’s lives by developing mental health and learning disability services with an emphasis on compassion and empathy.
In Bedfordshire and Luton, mental health services are provided by East London NHS Foundation Trust (ELFT) and in Milton Keynes by the Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL).
Our mental health and well-being services cover four main areas.
- Improving access to psychological therapies
- Adult mental health services and specialist learning disability services
- Recovery services
- Child and adolescent mental health services
Luton is one of four areas in the country to have taken part in a three-year Lottery funded ‘Living Well UK’ transformation programme for mental well-being and support.
The Luton programme, called Reimagining mental health, has given partner organisations and people with experience of living with mental illness the opportunity to share their ideas about providing better mental health care for the people of Luton.
You can access a range of self-help guides here.
