What does the helpline offer?

Our Mental Health Information Helpline provides information on services available for vulnerable residents with enduring mental health needs. We offer information on and signposting to local services, such as benefits and housing advice, counselling services and health and social care services.  We offer a confidential, empathic, and culturally sensitive approach and one-to-one support.

When can I call the helpline?

You can ring us if you need talk to someone for some emotional support. We are open from Monday to Friday 9am to 5.00pm, although the line may be on voicemail for short periods.

For information on the web about Harrow's mental health services you can visit the Mental Health Information Directory.

Support & Wellbeing Information Service Harrow (SWiSH)

The Mental Health Information Helpline is part of the Support & Wellbeing Information Service Harrow (SWiSH), which is a Care Act 2014 service commissioned by Harrow Council. SWiSH is for anyone in Harrow aged 18 years and over looking for ways to keep safe and well. It can also respond to enquiries from staff in local organisations. This service is run by a Harrow Community Action consortium of 5 local charities: Age UK Harrow, HAD, Harrow Carers, Harrow Mencap and Mind in Harrow.

Welfare Rights Bulletin

Previously, the mental health information service has produced a Welfare Rights Bulletin called Mind Your Money!. This bulletin provides up to date information about welfare changes for people in Harrow experiencing mental health problems, as well as where to get advice if you need it. You can read and download the most recent bulletin (from December 2015) here.
