Helpline for East Lancashire residents

Posted on the 20th March 2014

Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust’s mental health helpline is open 365 days a year offering an out of hours advice service and a listening ear for people worried about their mental health or that of someone they care about. In the current climate people can feel low because of problems such as money worries, job loss or relationship breakdowns. The helpline offers confidential support and information to people who feel distressed and want someone to talk to or even just listen to them.

Lorraine Khalaf, Helpline Manager at Lancashire Care  NHS Foundation Trust said:

“Many people can feel isolated and are unaware of the support, services and resources available to them.

“The helpline is here to offer confidential support and information to people who feel distressed and want someone to talk to or even just listen to them. It can be difficult to pick up the phone but don’t worry if you don’t know what to say as we’re here to help.

“We understand that sometimes life can be difficult and there are a number of things that can make people feel down, talking to someone can really help.”

The helpline is open Monday to Friday 7pm - 11pm and Saturday to Sunday 12 midday to 12 midnight. It’s completely free to call and the number will not appear on the caller’s phone bill. Follow this link to find out more about the mental health helpline
