Launch of mental health hotline for children and young people
A children and young people’s mental health helpline has been launched in Wiltshire, BaNES, and Swindon by the Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust which runs children’s mental health services in the region.
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 will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can be contacted as follows:
9am-5pm – weekdays 01865 903777
5pm-9am – weekdays and weekends 01865 901000
