Mental Health advice line for children and young people
Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has set up an out-of-hours advice line for children and young people.
The advice line - 01244 397644 - is open to everyone, including young people themselves, parents, teachers, healthcare professionals and the children and young people’s workforce. Its purpose is to provide advice and support on children and young people’s mental health.
The service offers mental health advice, resources, signposting and support calls. Mental health professionals can complete a mental health assessment over the phone and then pass it to the relevant Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services team for triage.
The service is available from 5pm to 10pm Monday to Friday, and from midday to 8pm at weekends and on bank holidays.
