We all need to look after our mental health. We also need to know who to turn to if things feel too much. Looking after your mental health is just as important as looking after your physical health.

If you or someone you know needs mental health support, there are free and confidential services that can help. Some of these services offer anonymous support online and others offer support via text, over the phone, or in person. Find the list of local services above.

Portsmouth Mental Health Hub

If you’re not sure where to get support, call the Portsmouth Mental Health Hub on 0300 123 6621 (Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm) to talk to the team, or visit the Portsmouth Mental Health Hub website.

Call 999 or go to your nearest Emergency Department now if:
