Blue Light Infoline Live
The mental health charity Mind has set up a dedicated information line for emergency staff, volunteers and their families.
In any given year, one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health issue. Independent research shows that the estimated quarter of a million people who work and volunteer in the emergency services are more at risk of experiencing a mental health issue than the general population, but are less likely to get support.
The Infoline offers confidential, independent and practical support, advice and signposting around mental health and wellbeing.
Open Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm, the phone number is charged at local rates. People can also contact the Infoline at any time by email or text, for a response from one of the dedicated advisors during the Infoline working hours.
Contact the Blue Light infoline: Phone: 0300 303 5999
Email: bluelightinfo@mind.org.uk Text: 84999
