First Response Helpline

First Response 

A 24/7 helpline offering immediate advice, support and signposting for people with mental health difficulties.

If you are experiencing something that makes you feel unsafe, distressed or worried about your mental health, call the helpline on 0808 196 3494

Who can call? 

The helpline is available to members of the public of any age. The line is also open to other healthcare professionals, such as ambulance staff and GPs, as well as social care colleagues and police personnel who may need advice when working with individuals who are undergoing mental health difficulties or may wish to refer someone.

What if I want to remain anonymous? 

If you would prefer that the person answering your call doesn’t see your telephone number, you can turn off your caller ID in your phone’s settings.
