Local GP and clincial lead for mental health in St Helens, Dr Laura Pogue, gives some advice to anyone struggling with mental health during the coronavirus pandemic.

Nothing is more important than looking after your mental health in the current situation.  Covid-19 restrictions can feel overwhelming for many so please don’t suffer in silence.  All our NHS mental health services remain very much open for business and your GP is also available to speak to you – whether on a phone, video call or face to face - to offer support, help and signposting.

You can also call the St Helens 24/7 mental health crisis line on 01925 275309 if you or someone you know is really struggling and needs immediate help.
