Nottinghamshire Mental Health Advice Line

The coronavirus pandemic is having a huge impact on our mental health and it is a common issue affecting people from all walks of life, yet we often find it hard to talk about.

Remember, it's ok not to be ok.

If you're struggling with mental health issues contact NHS Nottinghamshire Healthcare call the helpline number on 0300 555 0730.
