The Rossendale Rubicon is a not-for-profit organisation working throughout Rossendale for people aged 18 to 100+.
Rubicon was formed by the people who still used services at the time of the closure of the day unit at Rossendale General Hospital. It was felt strongly that something was needed to replace the service.
So that was the start of the Rubicon, set up and run by people of Rossendale who suffer of have suffered from depression, anxiety and other similar problems.
The Rubicon has since grown, seeing lots of new members, members moving on, some feeling they felt they could cope without the Rubicon, some even going into Further Education, voluntary work or even paid employment.
Rubicon is self-funded, so essential fund-raising takes place throughout the year.
