You Are Not Alone Campaign

5th May, 2020


Chrysalis Centre for Change is showing our support for the #YouAreNotAlone campaign with our photo collage.


https://www.gov.uk/government/news/home-secretary-announces-support-for-domestic-abuse-victims


The Home Secretary launched a new public awareness raising campaign highlighting that if anyone is at risk of, or experiencing domestic abuse, help is still available.


The campaign, under the hashtag #YouAreNotAlone, will aim to reassure those affected by domestic abuse that support services remain available during this difficult time.


It will encourage members of the general public to show their solidarity and support for those who may be suffering, by sharing government digital content or a photo of a heart on their palm, and asking others to do the same, to show victims that they are not alone and to convey to perpetrators that domestic abuse is unacceptable in any circumstances.


The campaign will be publicising support available including the freephone, 24 hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline number – 0808 2000 247 – run by Refuge, and www.nationaldahelpline.org.uk.

New 24/7 Mental Health Crisis Number

April 16, 2020


North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has launched the crisis line to provide support 24 hours a day, seven days a week to people of all ages, including children and young people, who need urgent mental health support. More details are below.


What to do if you need urgent help for your mental health:

If you are in a mental health crisis and you need urgent help, please call the new crisis line on 01925 275 309 and NHS staff will support you to get the help you need.


The crisis line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and is open to people of all ages, including children and young people.


The crisis line is now the first port of call for Halton residents experiencing a mental health crisis. The line is operated by people in the local area who will know how best to support you. If you call NHS 111 you may have to wait longer for help and will be redirected to this local service.


Please note, A&E and 999 are not the best places to get help for the majority of mental health problems. Call the crisis line, to be directed to the best local service to support you.

You should still call 999 or go to A&E if you have a life-threatening emergency and need immediate help for your mental or physical health.


Details of the crisis line and other sources of help available, including how to look after your mental health generally and during the covid-19 pandemic can be found:
