Halton Health Improvement Team and partners are launching the Borough’s first monthly Mental Health Hub on 7th September 2017.

The unique concept is the culmination of Halton Health Improvement Team’s work over the past 18 months to bring local support organisations together and raise awareness of mental health among Halton residents.

The Hubs will take place every month at two locations in Halton:

Runcorn Shopping City (Main Square)

The first Thursday of every month starting 7 September 2017 – 9.00am – 2.00pm.

Widnes Market (Community Stall opposite circular D.I.Y stall) 

The third Wednesday of every month starting 20 September 2017 – 9.00am – 2.00pm.

The aim of the Hubs is to give Halton residents a direct link to the many different services out there who can provide you with help and support to manage your mental health. If you have a mental health issue, don’t be afraid to talk about it, come along and speak to those who can help. Hub staff will be able to signpost residents to appropriate services if needed.

Some of the services who have already signed up to be involved with our Hubs include:

Addaction, Adult Safeguarding, Amparo, Bridgebuilders, CAMHS, CGL, Child Bereavement UK, Citizens Advice Halton, Kooth, MH Outreach Team, Nightstop Communities, Papyrus, Parents In Mind, SEND, Sidewalk Talk, Widnes & Runcorn Cancer Support, Widnes Police
