Support for Salford residents not known to Mental Health Services:

There is a new service for people in Salford that provides mental health support to people affected by COVID-19.

Working together, NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Salford City Council have supported Mind in Salford, mental health charity START and Six Degrees Social Enterprise to form a new service called Beyond.

Beyond will offer support to people who are struggling with their mental health due to COVID-19, but are not known to Salford’s mental health services.

To meet people’s needs, a range of options is on offer, including:

·         Online support (e.g. mindfulness, self-help support packages)

·         Telephone support (e.g. problem solving approaches, talking therapies)

·         Support to adapt or establish a routine whilst self-isolating/social distancing

Beyond will make sure that people get the mental health support that they need, from the right service, at the right time.

Referrals to the service are through the Spirit of Salford helpline, organised by Salford City Council on 0800 952 1000, Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 6pm, Saturday, 9am to 1pm, or www.salford.gov.uk/spiritofsalford
