Thursday 23rd April 2020: NHS Trust launches helpline for children and young people during the Coronavirus outbreak

A children and young people’s mental health helpline has been launched in Wiltshire.  The helpline will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Anyone concerned about a child or young person’s mental health (or the child or young person themselves) can phone the helpline and speak to mental health experts who will provide advice, guidance and support over the telephone. The helpline should not be used for situations which are life threatening (when emergency services should be notified by phoning 999).  The helpline will also help to reduce pressure on NHS 111, who are having to manage an increasing number of Covid-related calls.

What time is it?

The number to phone:

9am – 5pm on a weekday

01865 903777

5pm – 9am on a weekday or on weekends
