Living Life to the Full

Living Life to the Full

Living life to the Full is a 10 week Cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) based, NHS accredited peer-led course helping people to overcome or deal with depression, anxiety and low mood. It is meant as the first step in the 5 step mental health step care plan GP’s follow and they are able to refer to this course.

Here are some specific outcomes of Living life to the full based on the PH9 NHS depression support questionnaire from the last few courses.

o   4 people who never went out are now going outside again
o   10 are now employed, 2 self-employed and 6 now in volunteer positions
o   9 sought rehab and 3 are now totally clean
o   2 now living back with partners and no longer talking of divorce
o   5 are better nourished
o   2 soldiers sought help for ptsd and 4 sought professional therapy
o   15 felt less suicidal

If you are interested in attending the course, or would like to have more information please email us.

To offer long-term support and community we also run The Dog & the Elephant mental health support cafe.

In 2002 West End Impact started its journey of Reacting to Crisis and Rebuiding Lives!! We opened in response to the regeneration of Morecambe which was a government focus at the time.

Regeneration starts with people and although the new prom in Morecambe is amazing an the future plans of the 'Eden Project' will be amazing, there are still lots of people in need in this current economic climate.

In 2002 we saw the great need and although some of our services have change to adapt to different needs, still over 550 people were helped at West End Impact last year!

As a Christian Charity we believe God’s love for people is all inclusive, relevant for the whole human being.
For some the Good News of Jesus is a challenging word in season or a great sermon; for others it is a hot bowl of soup, housing advice and a dry sleeping bag.

The motivation of all that we do at IMPACT is our Faith, Hope and Love and we hope we can continue to inspire this in every single person we come into contact with. This could be someone in need or one of the many agencies, schools and organisations we network and rub shoulders with in the area of Morecambe & Lancaster
