Mental health support offer during the coronavirus crisis 

A Mental Health support offer is now in place offering emotional help, guidance and reassurance to people in Birmingham and Solihull who may be finding the current Coronavirus situation overwhelming.

As well as supporting the public with their worries and increased anxieties about COVID-19, there is also a dedicated helpline to provide support to frontline and key workers.

A number of local organisations are working together to deliver this new service including ourselves, Birmingham Mind, Forward Thinking Birmingham, the Living Well Consortium and Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust. Please click here for further information.
