Urgent Mental Health Support
– 24/7 Crisis Support


Every mental health trust in London has put in place a 24/7 crisis line for people of all ages – children, young people and adults. The lines which are free to call can provide advice to those in a crisis. These crisis lines are supported by trained mental health advisors 365 days a year. You can find the 24/7 crisis line numbers using the NHS Service Finder (link below) but the table provides all of the telephone numbers in London.  www.nhs.uk/service-search/mentalhealth/find-an-urgent-mental-health-helpline

Safer Internet Day will be on
8 February 2022

Text (c) www.safercommunitiestendring.co.uk

Safer Internet Day is celebrated globally in February each year to promote the safe and positive use of digital technology for children and young people and inspire a national conversation.

Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of organisations get involved to help promote the safe, responsible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

The day offers the opportunity to highlight positive uses of technology and to explore the role we all play in helping to create a better and safer online community. It calls upon young people, parents, carers, teachers, social workers, law enforcement, companies, policymakers, and wider, to join together in helping to create a better internet. Get involved to play your part!

Partnership for Children

Partnership for Children is an independent charity which promotes the mental health and emotional wellbeing of children, both in the UK and in many countries around the world. We produce mental health promotion programmes for primary schools that teach children skills for life: how to cope with everyday difficulties, how to communicate with and get on with other people, and build self-awareness and emotional resilience.

Zippy’s Friends and Apple’s Friends programmes have been independently evaluated and found to improve children’s coping skills, social skills, emotional literacy and reduce bullying. There is also an adapted version of Zippy’s Friends for pupils with SEND.

If you are interested in delivering Zippy’s Friends or Apple’s Friends to your class, please visit Partnership for Children’s website for more information about training courses for teachers. Our website also has free downloadable resources to help children talk about feelings and cope with difficult situations.
