Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire Mental Health Helpline has launched a freephone number as the service marks its 1,000th call for mental health advice.

Calls will now be free to the 24/7 mental health helpline which has received more than 1,000 calls from the public for mental health advice during the coronavirus pandemic.

The round-the-clock helpline was set up during the outbreak to make it quicker and easier for people in Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire to get the right advice they need for their mental health and emotional wellbeing.

It operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week for adults and children who need mental health care when their situation is not life-threatening.

The original local landline numbers will continue to operate alongside new 0800 freephone numbers.

Adults: 0800 783 0119 or 01865 904 997

Children and young people: 0800 783 0121 or 01865 904 998
