From crisis management to prevention: How the Lambeth Living Well Collaborative is driving the transformation of mental health services


Lambeth is a central London borough with a population of around 300,000 people. The area has nearly three times more people registered with severe mental illness (SMI) than the national average. As a result, Lambeth spends above national average on mental health care provision. The council and NHS now face the challenge to save up to £13 million in social services over the next four years. This financial imperative and collective consciousness that mental health services could be radically improved triggered the formation of the Lambeth Living Well Collaborative (The Collaborative) in 2010. 

Read this case study to find out how The Collaborative has begun to transform mental health services in Lambeth.
