Mental Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week is being used to remind people of a new telephone helpline for people who need urgent out-of-hours help because of their mental health.

The Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin Mental Health Telephone Triage Service was launched on April 1 this year.

It gives people with mental health issues a chance to contact help if they think they are having a crisis.

The Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin Mental Health Telephone Triage Service can be reached on 01743 210100. It currently operates from

6pm-2am from Sunday to Thursday and 6pm-6am on Friday and Saturday.
