For some there's advocacy, for those in crisis, there is the Hub of Hope.

1 in 4 people experience ill-mental health at some point in their lives. This can be a scary and unfamiliar time, you are at breaking point. You feel like you can’t go on. You feel that everyone would be better off without you. You feel like you couldn’t possibly get any lower than you are right now. What do you do?

Well now you can reach out to your phone and open the ‘Hub of Hope’ app. The app then pinpoints your location and reveals the nearest places for help and the right people to speak to. Online, on the phone, via text message – help is out there.

For people who are in crisis, who feel like there is nowhere to turn, there is the Hub of Hope. For some people, the Hub of Hope can be the only thing that pulls them back from the edge.

What is the Hub of Hope?

The Hub of Hope is the country’s first nationwide mental health database, which brings help and support together in one place. The app will help people to find much needed support using their phone’s location to find key services and organisations. Whether it’s someone to talk to or a ‘safe place’ to visit, there is always help available.

How are we supporting the Hub of Hope?

As an Ambassador of Hope, we have undertaken the Ambassador of Hope training, an accredited mental health course which focuses on how to talk about mental health, how to effectively signpost those who need help and how to deal effectively with a person having a mental health crisis.

We will also be working in partnership with Chasing the Stigma to gather all Lancashire-based mental health services under the under one roof, via the app, and be spreading the word about this revolutionary new app across our region. The app combined with our Ambassador of Hope training will signpost people in crisis to the services that can potentially save their lives.
