Advice and Information Service
In October 2019, Birmingham Mind started its Helpline providing advice and information to people experiencing mental health, their families, professionals and the wider public.
From September 2020, our Crisis service is able to commence face to face appointments again. This service has been reinstated to support those experiencing a mental health crisis, where face to face support is required. This service operates after 5pm and is available by appointment only – please call our Helpline number to book your appointment.
The helpline can also offer advice, information and signposting relating to health and social care and a range of other issues.
