The Mental Health Number


For local support and services give one of our mental health navigators a call, anytime of the day or night.

0800 448 0828 - Lines available 24 hours a day, seven days a week

NHFT and Northamptonshire Mind have brought a 24/7 mental health support number for the people of Northamptonshire.

The mental health number has been designed to be the only number you need to call for mental health support in the county. When an individual calls, a trained member of staff will find the right support for the person, whether this is from the NHS; the voluntary and community sector; or advice over the telephone.

Anyone in Northamptonshire is welcome to call, whether they are receiving mental health treatment or not. Existing service users can use the number as an alternative way to contact the service already supporting them as well as a way of speaking to someone out of hours. Healthcare professionals such as GPs can also call in order to refer their patients to services for support.
