Lambeth Living Well Network Hub

Overview

The Living Well Network Hub sits at the centre of a network of mental health services and organisations  which people in Lambeth can access when needed.  Call the hub on 020 3691 5080 or introduce yourself by emailing: information@lwnhub.net or slm-tr.lwnhub@nhs.net .

The Hub has the following organisations working in it:

  • South London and Maudsley Foundation NHS Trust (SLAM)
  • Certitude
  • Look Ahead
  • Thames Reach
  • Clapham Family Practice
  • Lambeth Council.

The Living Well Network Hub is often called the ‘front door to mental health services’. This is because if you are having a ‘wobbly’ day or you aren’t feeling well and are worried about your mental health and wellbeing, you can contact the Hub and introduce yourself. The staff will talk to you over the phone and ask you what is troubling you, what skills and strategies you employ that normally keep you well and what you think you need to get back to having a ‘good life’. This is usually done in person or over the phone.

Once you have spoken to a member of staff you can both make a plan of what to do next. This may be working with someone in the Hub for some additional support, or it may be referring you onto one of the services in the network. This may be medication or psychological treatment or it may be recommending a group or activity or a book that has techniques to help you. It may be offering advice or practical support to you about something do to with your housing or recommending you go to a specialist benefits advisor. The staff at the Hub will work with you and the people you already have in your network to support you.

Referral:  Anyone can introduce themselves or someone they are worried about, however, it is useful to understand that if you are worried about someone else they need you to tell that person you are speaking to the Hub. The Hub is part of ‘primary’ care, which means they try and work closely with your GP and your GP will become a part of your network, especially if you need medication.

The Living well Network Hub works with most people if they live in Lambeth or have a Lambeth GP and are over 18 and under 65. They only work with people for up to 12 weeks, but if you need support for longer they may refer you to another service.
