Did you know there is a new telephone support line, available to anyone aged 16+, for those who are experiencing stress, worry, and/or low mood as a result of the Covid-19 situation. It is open to both the general public and NHS staff, who may be feeling overwhelmed.

We have attached two information posters about the support line. The support line is staffed by the Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust and is available 8.00am to 8.00pm every day; providing:

  • A listening ear.
  • A chance to share how you’re feeling.
  • It can offer information, self-help materials and signposting toward other helpful services and organisations.

Please note this is not an emergency line, if someone is in need of urgent support they should ring the 24/7 urgent mental health support line on 0151 296 7200.
