North West Mental Health Crisis line 

North West Boroughs Healthcare has upgraded its existing 24/7 mental health crisis lines to Freephone numbers. This means they are now free to call from both landlines and mobile phones.

The new dedicated phone numbers are:
• 0800 051 3253 for people living in Wigan
• 0800 051 1508 for people living in Halton, Knowsley, St Helens and Warrington

The crisis lines provide support 24 hours a day, seven days a week to people of all ages, including children and young people, who need urgent mental health support. You do not need to be known to their services to contact the crisis lines, they are available for patients and public.

Please be assured, anyone who dials the original local numbers will still reach the mental health crisis teams first time, without the need to be diverted. However, calls made to the original numbers will be charged.

For more information about the crisis lines and the range of support available, please visit: www.nwbh.nhs.uk
