The Life Rooms, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust

EMHCA-NW-The Life Rooms, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust

North West

The Life Rooms embodies an innovative approach from Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust to support both mental health recovery as well as assist the prevention of mental ill-health. The service spans both primary and secondary care, addressing the social determinants of mental distress through the prioritisation of a community assets-based model. The Life Rooms represents a decisive step in breaking down traditional barriers to the way services are provided in a way that reshapes how care is delivered.

Nominated by: Luciana Berger MP

"The focus on long term condition management helps to reduce the risk of people with a mental health condition reaching crisis. This approach holds the key to keeping people well."
