The new ELHSCP Mental Health line is open from 09.00 to 16.00, Monday to Friday. You don’t need a referral from a GP or other clinical professional to use it. It’s for anyone aged 18 and over. If you are feeling anxious, depressed or have other worries about your mental health, call us on 01620 642 963 between 09.00 and 16.00, Monday to Friday. An experienced worker will take your details and make an appointment for you to speak to a specialist mental health practitioner, who will ring you back at a time that is convenient for you within the next 36 hours. The practitioner will assess you over the phone, and provide help and support and sometimes a referral onto other services.
This service is not designed for:
- People already being seen regularly by a Community Mental Health Nurse in the
