Mental Health Transformation

Together we will improve mental health and wellbeing through thriving, connected communities. Right care, right place, right time.


Over the last few months LPFT and partners from across Lincolnshire have been working together to develop and shape how Mental Health services will look and be delivered in the future. By listening and working with our local communities to understand more about what people want and need; we have been able to bring together a vision for Lincolnshire.

The video below gives an overview of what work has happened so far.

Our vision

To create opportunities for people to thrive; discover & shape their communities; encourage relationships and build a sense of belonging to support their wellbeing.

In the video below Victoria Sleight, Transformation Programme Manager, talks more about the programme and what is already happening across Lincolnshire.

This film is a short visual walk through of the NHS Long-Term Plan commitment on community mental health transformation. The video outlines essential information and learnings on the development of new integrated models of primary and community mental health for people with severe mental illness (SMI). It describes the principles of the already-published Community Mental Health Framework for Adults and Older Adults as per the vision of the Long Term Plan. It also explains the roles of the different organisations that need to work together to develop these models, and the central focus on the needs and involvement of patients, those that care for them, and other experts by experience.

Integrated Place Based Teams

An Integrated Place Based Team is a team that sits at the heart of the community and is made up of multiple professionals all working together to support individuals to live the best quality of life possible. They work together to promote self efficiency through a person centred approach and also to bridge the gap between voluntary, health and social care.
