A helpline is offering a listening ear to people who are feeling down and need to talk to someone over the winter or festive period.
Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust’s Wellbeing and Mental Health Helpline is offering a confidential, out of hours service to people worried about their mental health or that of someone they care about.
Lorraine Khalaf, helpline manager said: “We understand that the festive and winter season can be especially hard for people and want everyone to know that we’re here if they need us.”
The helpline will be open every day from 7pm-11pm throughout Christmas and New Year, contactable on Freephone 0300 222 5931. Normal opening hours will then be resumed in the New Year, which are 7pm-11pm Monday to Friday and 12noon-12midnight on weekends.
