What is Guide-Line?

Guide-Line is a confidential telephone helpline which provides mental health support and information, including about other services. You can use the service by calling 08001 884 884 between 12pm (midday) and 12am (midnight).

You can also speak to the Guide-Line team online via live chat. Chat with us online between 3pm and 8pm every day of the year.


Who is it for?

Anyone of any age, who lives in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale or Craven and feels in need of support. It is not a counselling or therapy service but speaking to one of our workers could help you stay well, build resilience and find out what support is available locally. You do not need a formal diagnosis to access Guide-Line and you can call or chat on someone else’s behalf or if you are worried about a friend or family member. All calls and chats are confidential unless we feel there is an immediate risk to you or someone else. You cannot always speak to the same worker each time you get in touch.
