Due to the Government advice regarding Coranavirus, we have adapted how we are supporting people with their mental health and are now offering phone and online video call sessions. We've also expanded to offer support in the evenings.
We are now providing the following support.
Anyone struggling with their mental health:
- can email the addresses listed below to let us know you would like to talk. Please include your phone number in your email and we can call you back. We want you to email us rather than phone but if you really cannot email, you can still call us on the numbers below.
- When we speak, you can tell us what is happening and we will listen. We can also offer advice and information and direct you to other sources of support. If we agree you could benefit from some regular support from us, we can develop a well-being/support plan with you. This could include one-to-one video sessions with a mental health worker online on Zoom. (It is straightforward to use but there will be links to videos about how to use Zoom from our website shortly).
People we are already in contact with and supporting:
- can email us for advice and information. Again, we much prefer you to email rather than phone. Email addresses and numbers remain the same and are below
- will be offered booked phone support appointments to review well-being/support plan and discuss any issues
- group sessions via online video calls on Zoom are being rolled out. We will contact you to let you know more about these.
- where people are more at risk or isolated, particularly people who are self-isolating and live alone, we will keep in touch with you by phone and email to make sure you are safe and have what you need.
If you do phone us - please note
We now have most of our staff working from home which means we may have only one duty person answering the phone. You may not hear the phone ringing at our end because it is on divert but please be reassured the call will go through. If you ring us, we will need to have a quick conversation to take your details. Then the duty member of staff will get someone who has time to talk to you to ring you back as soon as they can.
Our new evening support
We have mental health recovery workers available to speak with people who need support between 5pm and 10pm, seven evenings a week. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, including your phone number in your email, and we will call you back. Or, if you really need to phone, call 01903 268107.
We're also offering some regular evening Zoom video sessions from April 6. If you'd like to take part, please email email@example.com to book your place.
