New mental health support line supports local people during pandemic

Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has launched a new telephone-based support line for local people who are experiencing increased distress or anxiety during the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The new service, staffed by mental health professionals, is also intended to support people who are experiencing a reduction in their usual mental health care services, as a result of changes that have been made by the NHS to support the pandemic.

The support line, which will initially be available between the hours of 9am – midnight every day of the week, can be contacted by calling 0300 790 0596. The line is open to Derbyshire residents of all ages.
