The following message is from the Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
Here at Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, we recognise the toll that the COVID-19 pandemic is taking on our communities and the impact that the pandemic is having on the emotional and psychological wellbeing of people in Derbyshire.
Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has launched a new telephone-based support line for local people of all ages and their carers who are experiencing increased distress or anxiety during the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The new service also intends to support people who are experiencing a reduction in their usual mental health care services, as a result of changes that have been made to support the pandemic.
The support line, which will initially be available between the hours of 9am – midnight every day of the week can be contacted on 0300 790 0596.
For more information about the support line and wider information about our services at this time, please visit the Trust’s website at http://www.derbyshirehealthcareft.nhs.uk/coronavirus
