People across Sussex struggling with their mental health during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak are being offered additional telephone and crisis support to help them cope.
Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has expanded the Sussex Mental Healthline to provide a 24/7 service to people needing urgent help with their mental health.
As well as crisis support it will provide psychological support to people who have general concerns about their mental health.
Registered clinicians are at the other end of the freephone number to provide help, support and advice to anyone who needs it, at any time of the day or night, regardless of their age or where they live in the county.
The team at the Sussex Mental Healthline can offer advice and support to callers who are experiencing a crisis in their mental health, and if needed they can refer them to one of five newly created urgent help hubs for assessment and treatment.
You can contact Sussex Mental Healthline on 0300 5000 101.
