Mental Health Advice and Support during Coronavirus (COVID-19)
ABLEize is very concerned about the mental health of people in the UK following the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19). We believe that everybody should have mental health support if needed in a crisis including contacts for telephone, Internet and over the web crisis support during this time. Because of this we have painstakingly built categories for every UK region from Bedfordshire through to Worcestershire and listed recognised and trusted mental health support services so anybody needing Coronavirus (COVID-19) support in areas of depression, suicidal thoughts and fear, isolation and loneliness can still get the vital support they need when they need it.
We have had floods of contacts from distressed individuals reporting that many of the large mental health support organisations are unavailable due to the sheer volume of calls. For this exact reason we have built what is now the UK’s largest databank of mental health support services so that there is a large selection of contacts to use when finding others unavailable.
Please click on your county highlighted below to find a broad choice of mental health support contacts, online information and resources. Please note that telephone numbers are not included in the organisation’s description as these can change and cause great distress. Please see inside each website for up-to-date and correct telephone numbers.
Please do your bit for those with mental health issues and concerns during this frightened time by forwarding this page of mental health support contacts and spreading it throughout social media resources such as Facebook and Twitter to ensure the UK is able to receive adequate mental health support during this worrying time.
If you offer free UK confidential mental health support and you are not included in your area list, please email us via the Contact link at the bottom of this page and I will add your service if appropriate.
