Support Mental Health Issues During Lockdown

Mental health issues related to our lockdown and the pandemic are especially hard for people with depression.  As we go into a second lockdown please keep a lookout for your family, friends and neighbours who may be struggling.

SHOUT is the UK’s first 24/7 text service, free on all major mobile networks, for anyone in crisis anytime, anywhere. It’s a place to go if you’re struggling to cope and you need immediate help.
