Coronavirus and support for mental health support and wellbeing


Following government advice, we are providing our adult counselling service using via telephone and Zoom calls.

Due to the current coronavirus situation, we’ve made the difficult decision to suspend all local support group activities. Your health and wellbeing is of the utmost importance during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we want to carry on observing the government’s social distancing rules at this time. 

We are continuously reviewing the situation, taking into account the latest government advice on social distancing. We are striving to reinstate local support group activity as soon as possible. During this time, we are evaluating the potential to operate these groups using digital technology, such as Zoom. If you are interested in attending a virtual support group – please contact us today.

Our information and support pages provide more resources on wellbeing and taking care of yourself during Covid-19. 

Out of hours, please ring the Samaritans Talkline on their freephone number from any phone: 116 123

Further information on Coronavirus (COVID-19) is available from the NHS website.

The coronavirus pandemic is having a huge impact on our mental health. Help us be there for everyone who needs us at this crucial time.

Wiltshire Mind relies on individual donations and fundraising to provide our mental health services for our local community.
