First Response service for urgent mental health support has new freephone number from today
First Response has a new number and is now free for all callers. Launching today, the urgent mental health phone support service is available on 0800 952 1181 and calls from all landlines and mobiles will not be charged.
People needing urgent mental health support – including experiencing something that makes them feel unsafe, distressed or worried – can call First Response on 0800 952 1181. The service continues to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for people of all ages in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven.
The ‘01274’ number is continuing in the short term, so if people call this number, they will still get through to First Response, but callers will be charged.
People who need to speak with someone about how they’re feeling when they’re not in a crisis situation, can call Guide-Line on 08001 884 884. The line is open midday to midnight, every day.
