Mental health helpline
‘First Response’, a freephone 24/7 mental health helpline has also been launched to provide reassurance, self-help advice, and to signpost to support. The service, which is being offered by the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, aims to help people to manage their mental health during Covid-19. The helpline is
being made available to people of all ages, and once people
are connected they will be put through to a mental health
practitioner who will offer advice and support. Please do
promote the helpline: the number is 0808 196 3494.
