Updates to our groups over Christmas

With just over a month to go, it’s time to talk about Christmas! We will be closing the office from Monday 20th December – Tuesday 4th January but we will be doing our best to ensure the phonelines and emails will be checked over the Christmas period, during normal work hours (Mon-Fri, 9-5). That means that, if you need support navigating the Sheffield Mental Health Guide, you can still contact us and we will do our best to respond. If you can’t get through on the phone, please leave a voicemail and a member of staff will get back to you as soon as possible. While we will always do our best to support you, we are not a crisis line and if you need urgent mental health support, we advise contacting one of the following:

  • Samaritans: 116 123. Available 24/7.
  • Sheffield Mental Health Crisis Line: 0808 801 0440. Calls are free from a landline or mobile. Available 24/7.
  • Text STEEL to 85258
  • Single Point of Access: 0808 196 8281 (calls are free from a landline or mobile) or 0114 226 3636. Available 24/7.

Our Groups

If you regularly attend one of our groups, please take a look to see when the group is breaking for Christmas and when they will return in the New Year. If the date for your group isn’t listed yet, don’t worry, it will be up as soon as we hear back from the enterprise lead.
