24/7 Mental Health Helpine  - Expanding on the existing successful Somerset Mindline service, this round-the-clock helpline will make it quicker and easier for people in Somerset to get the right advice they need for their mental health and wellbeing. Open 24 hours a day, seven-days a week, it is open to people of all ages who need urgent mental health support.
