Single Point of Access for Mental Health Crisis Services:

Call 0300 0200317.  This is a centralised telephone number making it easier for those in mental distress to get urgent help.  This replaces individual contact numbers for crisis services in County Durham and Darlington, Teesside and North Yorkshire and York, including those for children and young people and older aged adults.


Time to talk

 

It’s not always easy to find the right words.

It’s not always easy to ask for help.

Your mental health is just as important to us as your physical health.

So if you call us and tell us ‘it’s time to talk’, we’ll know that you need help.

Our reception team, nurses and GPs will know this means you need support. This is part of a national campaign to raise awareness, and support mental health awareness.
