24/7 mental health support in Birmingham and Solihull, now just a phone call away

24/7 mental health support in Birmingham and Solihull, now just a phone call away

A new 24/7 telephone helpline means people in Birmingham and Solihull experiencing mental health difficulties during the current pandemic, now have easily accessible support to help them with common issues such as stress, sadness, disrupted sleep and anxiety.

The support line offers confidential emotional help, guidance and reassurance to people of all ages and backgrounds, including key workers, who may be finding the current situation we are living with overwhelming.

Dr Angela Brady, Deputy Chief Medical Officer at NHS Birmingham and Solihull CCG, said:

“This week (18-25 May) is Mental Health Awareness Week, so it is the perfect time to encourage any local person to access this new helpline. Everyone needs a bit of support sometimes, and this telephone line offers an easy way to take the steps to getting the support you may need during this difficult and worrying time.

“Good mental wellbeing is as essential as good physical wellbeing, and people should not have to suffer in silence. They need to know that even though they may be isolated, they are not alone - help is there and it is just a phone call away.” 

To access the service, simply call 0121 262 3555, any day, or time; we’re here to help.
