Together we can make Lancashire the beacon county for mental wellbeing.

Our Mission is to Revolutionise attitudes, Challenge perceptions, Alter provision.
Our objectives are:
1. To build a happier Lancashire.

Our vision, mission and objectives will be achieved through three main ways of working:-
1. Influencing and campaigns: organised actions to bring about changes in policy, behaviour and culture.
