New online mental health service trialled in Lincolnshire
Families in South Holland could soon have use of a new online psychological therapy service currently being trialled across the county.
The project, promoted by Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) and digital healthcare technology company Healios, allows people affected by severe mental disorders to get help through live, “clinician-led” video sessions.
Being able to offer an online service is not only helping with swift support for families, but means we can reduce the burden of travel as well
Claims that the service has reduced anxiety levels by 29 per cent and depression levels by 35 per cent have convinced the East Midlands Academic Health Science Network (EMAHSN) to fund and support the trial throughout Lincolnshire.
