What is the Wellways Helpline?

People can call Helpline to talk to someone who cares and receive:

  • tips and strategies for coping with mental health issues, including how to support a friend or family member
  • links to support groups, education programs and local community activities

All our Helpline volunteers are ‘peers’, people who have a lived experience of mental health issues.
