We understand that this is an extremely difficult time for everyone at the moment. Please ensure that you are taking steps to look after your mental health, and the wellbeing of those around you.

What to do if you need URGENT mental health help:
Please call 0300 303 3972 and our dedicated local NHS staff will support you to access the help you need;
The helpline is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is open to people of all ages – including children and young people.
The helpline is now the first port of call for mental health help – it is operated by people in your local area who will know how best to support you.
If you call NHS111 you may have to wait longer for help and will be re-directed to this local service – so call 0300 303 3972;
Please note, A&E and 999 are not the best places to get help for the majority of mental health problems – call 0300 303 3972 to be directed to the best local service to support you.
You should still call 999 or go to A&E if you have an immediate, life-threatening emergency requiring mental or physical health assistance.
Staying safe and well includes looking after your mental health too, and that can be easily forgotten.
