Groups and organisations which help people affected by mental health problems have a second opportunity to apply for funding.

The Mental Illness Prevention Fund is offering up to £168,000 in funding to help people who are recovering from mental illness or who are living with mental illness.

The fund was set up in January by Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Lincolnshire County Council

The money can be used to reduce the risk of people, aged between 18 and 64, becoming unwell.

The fund is only available to community and voluntary groups and independent organisations.

Applications need to be made by December 7.

Paul Jackman, associate director at the Trust said: "This is the second wave of funding this year to help volunteer groups and other organisations build on and improve the services and support that they already provide.

"We would encourage new groups to apply and organisations with new projects that could help people with mental health problems throughout Lincolnshire."

For more information about the fund and also how to apply call Sophie Deeks on 01529 222223.
