WINNER: Lancashire and South Cumbria FT - MyPlace

Myplace is an eco-therapy based partnership between Lancashire and South Cumbria Foundation Trust and Lancashire Wildlife Trust. The project is continually evolving, responding to the challenges created by covid-19 with innovative approaches. This has ensured the service has expanded its holistic offer by working with service users to reach an increasing number of diverse communities underserved throughout the pandemic.

With the growing focus on both the crisis facing mental health and our environment, “the partnership aspires to a new normal where people and the environment are much more entwined in a collectively healthy future - a Natural Health Service.”
