Mental Health Matters MHM Coventry & Warwickshire Helpline
Call on 0800 616 171 – a free 24/7 confidential helpline providing emotional support to residents of Coventry & Warwickshire.
Helpline staff are highly skilled, trained and compassionate – they are here to help you.
Things they can help you with may include:
- Feeling low, anxious or stressed and feel that talking to another person might help you
- In extreme emotional distress and feel that there is nowhere else to turn
- You’re caring for another person and finding it difficult to cope
- You need advice about how to get more support with an issue that’s affecting your mental wellbeing
- You feel socially isolated and just need a chat
Talking to someone on our Helpline can give you a feeling of relief, peace of mind and help improve your wellbeing.
You won’t be judged, and our service is confidential unless we believe that there is a risk to you or others. We can also sign-post you to a local service.
If our service is right for you, one of our Employment Advisors will work with you to support you towards your own employment goals.
They will help you to identify your strengths and skills, and to develop through experience, volunteering and training which is tailored to suit your needs.
If you are already working and experience difficulty in the work place then an employment coach can provide you with support and assistance whilst you deal with your challenges and decide how you wish to proceed, including support if you wish to change positions or careers.
We also work with local employers to raise their awareness about mental health in the workplace and what they can do to support their employees.

Feeling distressed, frightened, overwhelmed, or that things are too much for you?
Don’t know where to turn to get mental health support?
Are your usual sources of support closed?
The Warwickshire Safe Havens offer out-of-hours mental health support to anyone aged 16+ in the Warwickshire area, from two locations in Nuneaton and Leamington Spa.
This is a walk-in service – there’s no need to be referred by your GP or Care Coordinator. The Safe Havens offer two welcoming, safe, comfortable, non-judgmental and non-clinical environments, sometimes known as ‘crisis cafes’.
At the Safe Havens, we will be able to provide information and emotional support if you are in crisis or feel you are heading towards a crisis situation.
You can come just for a cup of tea and a chat, or you can access one-to-one emotional support from trained mental health professionals.
We also offer help in creating staying well and crisis plans, and support visitors to access other services and organisations that may be useful to them.
We work closely with GPs, Community Mental Health Teams, Crisis Teams, A&E Mental Health Liaison Teams, Police and Ambulance Services, Street Triage, and other front-line healthcare professionals to ensure that people in emotional distress have a safe, supportive place to go to, with appropriate mental health support available.
People using the Safe Havens will also be supported by our 24/7 helpline, which offers access to emotional support and information even when the safe Havens are closed.
Anyone aged 16 and over can come to the Safe Havens – you don’t need a formal referral or appointment.
Please note: the Safe Havens are not suitable for people needing urgent medical attention (for example, after self-harm) – for urgent medical care please attend your nearest A&E or call 999.
Please also be mindful that if your behaviour is inappropriate and/or negatively impacting the safety and wellbeing of others using the service, you may be turned away.
