If you, or someone you care about, is experiencing some kind of mental or emotional distress, the Hub of Hope https://www.hubofhope.co.uk/ is provided by national mental health charity, Chasing The Stigma.
The Hub of Hope is the UK’s leading mental health support database bringing local, national, peer, community, charity, private and NHS mental health support and services together in one place for the first time.
All you need to do is type in an address, city or postcode and it’ll bring up a list of all the help that available is near to you.
The services and support listed on there are not only for when things become unbearable – a crisis point.
They are also there for those times when people are starting to struggle, or when people need support as they start to emerge from a particularly difficult time.
