Local mental health services

Health organisations in Lancashire and South Cumbria have worked together to develop this interactive map of mental health services. The Google Maps based system lists all the organisations working locally, and allows you to search for your closest service or for specific types of support, to help you get appropriate care.

You can filter the map to just show services for children and young people.

Our Voice - Therapeutic support for children in care

In May 2023 a 12-month pilot was launched for a new service provided by Child Action North West which is offered to children and young people from both in and out of area placed into care in the East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen areas.

The service provides:

  • One to one therapeutic support
  • Group therapy
  • Diversionary work
  • Carers sessions
  • Online guided tools

The service has been put together co-produced with children and young people. It is only open to young people in care and they can be referred only through specific routes through their social worker.

Local Eating Disorder Service


An eating disorder is a mental health condition where you use the control of food to cope with feelings and other situations. Unhealthy eating behaviours may include eating too much or too little or worrying about your weight or body shape. Anyone can develop an eating disorder but with treatment most people can recover.

Eating disorders represent serious psychological and medical problems requiring professional help. In severe cases your GP can refer you to one of the all age specialist eating disorder teams in Lancashire. Clinicians in these services include psychologists, psychological therapists, specialist nurses and dietitians. If you feel you have an eating disorder, please request an appointment with your GP who can refer you to the all age eating disorder service.

Here is a list of helpful resources with further information regarding eating disorders:
