Call Young Minds on their freephone parental support contact number 0808 802 5544 for over-the-phone support if you are worried about the mental health of a child or to ask if there any upcoming fundraiser events to get involved with.
Overview of the Mental Health Charity
Young Minds is one of the UK’s leading mental health charities which is committed to improving the well-being of children and young people throughout the country. For instance, the charity lobbies the UK government on mental health policies and visits schools in aid of promoting their cause. Noticeably, the charity provides a free parents helpline service for anyone who requires over-the-phone advice regarding their child’s mental state.
Freephone Parents Support Helpline – 0808 802 5544
Phone Young Minds on their freephone parent support helpline number 0808 802 5544 to contact a charity representative with concerns about a child or young person. Callers to the free helpline will receive confidential and expert advice about a child’s behaviour, emotional wellbeing, or pre-existing mental health condition. For instance, once through to the service, a trained advisor will listen and talk through your concerns in complete confidentiality before suggesting what to do next. For instance, if you or your child requires further support then the charity can refer you to a psychiatrist or mental health nurse who will be in touch during a phone consultation that will take place within 7 days.
Alternatively, you may wish to ask for urgent support if you believe that a child is a risk to themselves or others and can ask for information regarding the process of getting medical intervention. You may also wish to discuss the possibility of making an over-the-phone donation to support the work of the charity but it should be noted that there is a link to donate online at the bottom of this page.
