Mental Health Help and Support

In response to the current health crisis, a dedicated freephone helpline has been set up by Wirral Council to support young people who may be struggling. The number to call is 0808 196 4147.

The helpline, staffed by professionals from across the council’s children’s services who are experienced in dealing with young people, will be open from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday. All calls made to the number will be free.

Young people across the borough are being encouraged to call the number if they are feeling unsafe for any reason or have any worries at all. All calls will be treated as confidential with staff providing support in whatever way they can, to show Wirral’s young people they don’t have to struggle on their own.

Urgent Mental and Emotional Health Support Line

Cheshire and Wirral Partnerships NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) has launched a new 24 hour mental health helpline which can be accessed by all Wirral residents (of all ages including children and young people) who need urgent support. If you need urgent support for your mental health, please call their mental health helpline on 0300 303 3972 and their dedicated local staff will support you to access the help you need.
