22 December 2020

The pandemic is affecting everyone differently. For many this Christmas will be a tough time and it’s ok to not be ok. Help is available. To speak to someone about how you are feeling, please go to: https://www.cnwl.nhs.uk/patients-and-carers/help-mental-health-crisis

For urgent mental health support, you can also access the following services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week:

Many people may be feeling lonely this Christmas.
