Dear Newfield School,
I hope that you are well.
We are contacting you to let you know about a new telephone support line. It is available to anyone aged 16+, therefore although this is not applicable to many of your students, staff and parents may benefit from this support, for those who are experiencing stress, worry, and/or low mood as a result of the Covid-19 situation. It is open to both the general public and NHS staff, who may be feeling overwhelmed.
We have attached two information posters about the support line; to let people know about this new service. One of the posters uses an accessible information format, suitable for those with learning disabilities. These could be placed in your workplace, for either your staff and/or the general public to view it. The posters could also be emailed to staff or other interested parties.
The support line is staffed by the Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust and is available 8.00am to 8.00pm every day; providing:
Please note this is not an emergency line, if someone is in need of urgent support they should ring the 24/7 urgent mental health support line on 0151 296 7200.
If you have any queries about the support line, please do not hesitate to contact me or contact:
Dr Frank Chapman (Consultant Clinical Psychologist),
