West Lothian Well-Being Service launches
28 February 2022
West Lothian Social Enterprise Network (WLSEN) is launching a new partnership project to improve mental health and wellbeing in West Lothian. The West Lothian Well-being project is connecting adults, experiencing mild to moderate mental health issues, with local partners which can offer them support and advice.
“Wellbeing Scotland is very excited to be part of this inspiring new initiative. We feel it is a model of good practice that could be replicated across Scotland. It brings together a wide range of partners with substantial experience in working with mental health to provide person-centred outcomes for people looking for support. We recognise the significant challenges people face in very challenging times and this support will be vital to ensure positive mental wellbeing in West Lothian.”

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.
“We are lucky in West Lothian to have a strong army of community-based organisations providing a diverse range of mental wellbeing services and support. This is an important time to launch the project as people struggle to recover their lives affected by the pandemic and the rising cost of living. This new collaboration will become a very valuable West Lothian resource, helping people struggling with their mental health to get the right information at the right time. By linking people across West Lothian to local services and support we will be giving people more choice and involving and empowering them to have more control over their long term wellbeing.”
