Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust’s Wellbeing and Mental Health Helpline is encouraging people who are experiencing low mood or distress to get in touch.

The Wellbeing and Mental Health Helpline provides a listening ear for people across Lancashire who may be feeling low, lonely or experiencing mental health problems. It also signposts callers to additional services including mental health teams and services to help with overall wellbeing including eating disorders, domestic violence and sleeping problems. The helpline can be contacted on 0800 915 4640 and is open Monday to Friday 7pm to 11pm and Saturday and Sunday 12 midday to 12 midnight.

Perri McGovern from the Wellbeing and Mental Health Helpline at the Trust said:

“The helpline is here to provide a confidential listening and emotional support line to those who are concerned about their own mental health, or that of someone they know. We also provide general help for people who are feeling a low, struggling with bereavement, or having difficulties sleeping. Be it for yourself or for a loved one, the service can signpost you to local support groups for assistance. No one should have to suffer alone and we urge that anyone who needs someone to talk to, to get in touch.”
