Mental health

Introduction

If you are dealing with a mental health crisis or emergency and want to speak to someone, please call Newham’s Mental Health Crisis Helpline on 020 7771 5888. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

During these uncertain and challenging times, it is important to think about how we can best take care of our mental health and wellbeing. You may feel bored, frustrated or lonely and miss being able to connect with family, friends and colleagues. You may also feel low, worried or anxious, or concerned about your finances, employment or the health of those close to you.

Some people call mental health ‘emotional health’ or ‘well-being’. Taking care of our mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health.
