Student Competition

The students of West Lothian College shared their ideas for creating a new name and an instantly recognisable visual identity for this initiative, We are very happy to be able to launch this new service helping adults (18+) living in West Lothian with their mental health, supported by West Lothian Council and NHS Lothian’s Health & Social Care Partnership.

Anyone can experience poor mental health, but there are things that we can all do to protect our own mental wellbeing, catch things before they get to a crisis point, or to recover if that’s what people need. Our aim is to work with many local partners providing mental health services across West Lothian – and make sure that people get the information they need to connect with the best services for them when they need it. 

The Pilot Project

West Lothian Social Enterprise Network (WLSEN) is launching a new partnership project to improve mental health and wellbeing in West Lothian.

This pilot project will connect adults, experiencing mild to moderate mental health issues, with local partners which can offer them support and advice.  

This new signposting service is person-centred. It will identify an individual’s needs and, through discussion, find a pathway that can help build self-confidence and personal coping strategies.

It’s about providing individuals with the right information to make the right choices at the right time for them.

This is a ground breaking project to shape the future of mental health services in West Lothian. It’s built upon three key elements:

  1. Working with West Lothian residents with low/medium mental health issues (minimum age 18 years). 
  2. Seeing each client as a unique individual, protecting their privacy and respect their dignity.
  3. Taking a preventative approach which helps individuals’ positive wellbeing and resilience across West Lothian.
