We know that many people struggle with mental Heath; Stress, Anxiety and Depression especially at this difficult time.
Cheshire and Wirral Partnership (CWP), has launched a new mental health helpline which our patients can access if they need urgent mental health support during the Covid-19 pandemic.
What to do if you need urgent mental health help:
Please ? 0300 303 3972
Local NHS staff will support you to access the help you need;
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.
You should still call 999 or go to A&E however if you have an immediate, life-threatening emergency requiring mental or physical health assistance.
For non-urgent help and general wellbeing advice, the CWP website contains information and links to resources to support people with anxiety, low mood, and worries relating to the current Covid-19 pandemic
For children and young people, there is also a dedicated website
