Mental Health Support

Money worries and debt can have a severe impact on mental health so it is normal to feel anxious or depressed, but there is help and support available for both your mental health and money issues, you are not alone.

If you are about to or in the process of attempting to complete suicide please ring 999.

NHS urgent mental health helpline: 111

Help is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Calls to NHS urgent mental health helplines are free.

If you call, you'll speak to a professional in your local NHS mental health service.

They can discuss your current mental health needs and provide access to further support if needed.

Mental Health Innovations

You can text "SHOUT" to 85258 for free from all major UK mobile networks. You'll then be connected to a volunteer for an anonymous conversation by text message. This is not an NHS service.
