The Sussex Mental Healthline is changing

Important changes are coming to the Sussex Mental Healthline.

From spring 2020 callers will dial 111 and ask for the Sussex Mental Healthline. The same service will be available but you will be able to access urgent help and support 24 hours a day, seven days a week, no matter where you are in Sussex. We're also expanding the team to include registered mental health professionals. 

We'll let you know exactly when the change will happen nearer the time, but don't worry, the existing number - 0300 5000 101 - will continue to work, you'll be automatically diverted to 111.
