These uncertain times can be difficult for people with mental health issues and patients can be assured that support can still be accessed when needed. All services are abiding by the latest government advice and therefore services are changing the way they support patients. As with many other health services, appointments can now take place by telephone or by video consultations, so that face-to-face contact is minimised for the safety of everyone. Face to face support, however, is still available for those who really need it and want it.
If anyone is struggling with their mental health we would advise them to access Big White Wall at www.bigwhitewall.com which is a free online mental health support service available 24 hours a day and is completely anonymous.
For further information on changes to services, and access to health and wellbeing support during the Coronavirus outbreak, go to the service changes page.
