You do not need to be referred to the crisis line, you can just phone at any time you need support during the opening hours.
What is the crisis line?
Havant and East Hants Mind have been commissioned by Hampshire & Isle of Wight CCG partnership to deliver the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Children and Young people’s freephone crisis line.
The crisis line is available for young people living in:Isle of Wight, Havant, East Hampshire, Fareham, Gosport, Winchester, Eastleigh, Test Valley, Hart and Rushmoor, Basingstoke, Andover and the New Forest (The service does not currently cover Portsmouth or Southampton).
Crisis has been established in response to the increase in mental health needs of children and young people due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions in place.
The crisis line offers immediate one to one support to young people aged 11-17 years old who are experiencing a mental health crisis or in need of support to manage their mental health.
What it’s not
The crisis line cannot offer mental health assessments for young people as a replacement for A&E or mental health services
The crisis line is not an emergency service, if you or someone else is in immediate risk of danger or harm please always dial or text “Register” to 999.
We would like to thank Hampshire & Isle of Wight CCG Partnership for funding and supporting this service.
