New 24/7 mental health helpline launched

A 24/7 mental health helpline has been launched by Oxford Health. This will give access to specialist mental health care and  take pressure off NHS111 for mental health advice in  Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

With support from Oxfordshire Mind, it will operate during the coronavirus pandemic to provide people with specialist mental health care as NHS111 receives an increasing number of COVID-19 related calls.

The round-the-clock helpline will make it quicker and easier for people in both counties to get the right advice they need for their mental health and wellbeing. It is operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Like NHS111, people can call when they need to find out when and where to get help and to access support from mental health professionals.

For adults the number is: 01865 904997.
For children and young people the number is: 01865 904998

People who already use mental health services should contact services directly using the numbers in their care plan.
