Helpline for worried parents

Do you have a child or young person who was at school in Brighton & Hove before the schools were shut down?

If you have any concerns about their emotional mental health and wellbeing, you are invited to talk to a primary mental health worker from our schools wellbeing service.

Telephone consultations are available while schools are closed. Please:

  • email or
  • phone 01273 293 481.

You will need to send / leave us your name and phone number, and a mental health worker will call you back.

While we aim to call back within two days, please be aware we may have a high demand. So your patience is appreciated.

This is not a crisis service. If you require immediate support you need to contact your GP, call CAMHS duty care on 03003 040 061 or go direct to A&E.

You can also visit for more information about mental health and wellbeing, as well as advice and services for young people and parents / carers.
