Mental health support team co-production

The Fylde Coast CCGs have been selected to establish two Mental Health Support Teams – one which will cover education settings in Blackpool and one which will cover education settings in Wyre.

The CCGs have an ambition to establish a further MHST in Blackpool, as well as a team in Fylde in future years. The Wyre area has been selected for the earlier wave, as opposed to Fylde, due to the higher levels of deprivation.

To find out more about our plans as they stand visit our services page here: Mental Health Support Teams

To make the service the best it can be we need to views of young people, parents, carers and school leaders. We have created some great ways for you to have your say and get involved in the process. You can take part in as many of them as you like.  Find out more about each of them by clicking the buttons below.

Competition - Now closed

We are working with children, young people; parents/carers and school leaders to create the new service but it needs a name and a design.

MHST design a logo and name competition terms and conditions

The competition is now closed. Thank you to everyone who took part. We had some really excellent entries which will be judged at our first service shaper in the coming week.

Attend our drop in roadshows

We will be holding some drop in roadshows in schools and colleges. We will get the school/college to let you know when they are happening so keep an eye out.

Sign up for our service shaper events

If you want to be more heavily involved we will be creating a panel of service “super shapers.”

We will be holding virtual meetings where you can meet other people who want to be involved and discuss the plans we make.

The first of these meetings will be held on:

  • Tuesday 19 October 6pm-7pm (for young people)
  • Thursday 21 October 6pm-7pm (for parents and carers)

To sign up to be a super shaper just leave your details below. (Contact details will be collected by the NHS CCG and kept securely and not shared outside of the organisation without prior express permission to do so. It will be used only for keeping you informed of the development of the service and asking for your involvement. You can ask for this information to be deleted and opt out of taking part at any time by contacting and asking to be removed from the mental health service distribution).
