New Mental Health Helpline
Posted on 9 Jun 2020
A new 24 hour mental health helpline launches 9th June for residents in Leeds and neighbouring regions (Calderdale, Kirklees, Wakefield and Barnsley).
The West Yorkshire helpline provides confidential support, advice, information and guidance for anyone concerned about their mental health, or of the mental health of their family members or those they care for. Trained telephone advisors will provide support for people in distress who need someone to talk to, and also signpost and refer people into services for further help, in line with our local pathways.
Anyone aged 18 or over registered with a Leeds GP can call the helpline for support on 0800 183 0558. Anyone who calls who is under 18 will be signposted to relevant services.
