Health and wellbeing support

Specialist sector advice from trusted UK organisations

The NHS has launched a mental health hotline as part of a package of measures to support its staff – as we are doing everything we can to support our incredible NHS workers as they care for people through this global health emergency. The best thing the public can do is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives. 


The phone line will be open between 7am and 11pm every day, while the text service will be 24/7.

  • Telephone: 0300 131 7000
  • For the 24/7 text helpline simply text FRONTLINE to 85258



Whilst the overall NHS advice remains largely the same for all people a range of trusted UK charities provide excellent advice for specific subject areas and COVID-19 (coronavirus). This list will be updated as more information and advice is provided.
