If you would like to talk to somebody about mental health or wellbeing, in the first instance you should talk to your GP.

You can also access information or support about mental health from:

Samaritans, which offers free, confidential, 24-hour emotional support over the phone (116 123) or by email (jo@samaritans.org), or face-to-face at your local branch: https://www.samaritans.org/branches

Mind, the mental health charity, offers information about mental health and accessing support on their website (https://www.mind.org.uk/). They also provide information over the phone (0300 123 3393), by email (info@mind.org.uk) or by text (86463).

Mind has also launched a ‘Find the Words’ Campaign. This aims to support individuals in talking about mental health with their GP: https://www.mind.org.uk/findthewords

Carers UK also offers a free helpline (0808 808 7777) that offers advice on financial and practical matters related to caring, as well as a listening service. They also provide a free online carers forum: http://www.carersuk.org/forum
