The number is available Monday to Friday from 9.00 – 5.00 pm. Telephone support can also be arranged for the evenings and weekends.

Coming soon

We will shortly be launching some of our recovery, self-management and wellbeing groups on the online platform ZOOM. If you have access to a smartphone, laptop or PC, you will be able to join a group. Our staff will be in contact with you to find out what interests you -  and talk you through how to set up and join in. If you haven't already heard from us about this, or if you are new to our services, please also get in touch on 07484852661 or email phil.morris@health-in-mind.org.uk.
