Mental health support line

Mental health support is now available to Derbyshire residents of all ages through a new mental health support line.

Call 0300 790 0596 between the hours of 9am and midnight, seven days a week (This is a low-cost telephone number).


The new mental health support line aims to provide additional support and guidance to people who have mental health needs during this time. It will provide:

  • An immediate telephone response to those experiencing immediate distress due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • Support for existing Derbyshire Healthcare service users who are experiencing reduced contact with our services
  • Support for people who may need longer-term help – for example by signposting to IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapy) services
  • A professional point of contact for health and social care partners to support any individuals in mental distress. 


This is a temporary service that has been developed as part of the Trust’s response to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The service will be reviewed on a regular basis and again once the Trust’s services return to their usual ways of working.
