NHFT and the mental health charity, Mind, have bought a 24/7 mental health support number for the people of Northamptonshire.
The mental health number has been designed to be the only number you need to call for mental health support in the county. When an individual calls, a trained member of staff will find the right support for the person, whether this is from the NHS; the voluntary and community sector; or advice over the telephone.
Anyone in Northamptonshire is welcome to call, whether they are receiving mental health treatment or not. Existing service users can use the number as an alternative way to contact the service already supporting them as well as a way of speaking to someone out of hours. Healthcare professionals such as GPs can also call in order to refer their patients to services for support.
If you have questions or concerns around housing, financial worries, or further information on benefits, Accommodation Concern staff are here to help on 01536 416560.

The Mental Health Number aims to be accessible to all.
If you are deaf, have hearing impairments, stammers, speech impediments or other physical impairments which mean you are unable to communicate via telephone, we work with Relay UK service to ensure that you can access our team.
Relay has a couple of different options.
- If you are deaf or have a hearing impairment you can communicate through text and an interpreter will read the text out loud to us. We can then respond, and this will be text back to you.
- If you have a speech impediment or stammer you can communicate through text to an interpreter who will speak to us, and you will be able to hear our response.
We can also organise an appointment at one of our Crisis Cafes which is done face to face.
If you need access to a translator you will need to let us know your name, contact details and which translator you need, and we will organise this and call you back.
If you are in crisis, you can call NHS 111 who have direct access to translators who will work with you and then refer into our service.
