PANDEMIC IMPACT

At Hoddlesden St Paul’s CE Primary School, we’re here to work with our children and their families, local health and care services and the local community to make sure we are all working the best way we can for our school families. We know the current coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic will have a big impact on people’s ability to access the support they need. We also know that this will be a time of increased anxiety and worry for many, and that social distancing measures will have an impact on some people’s emotional health and wellbeing.

YoungMinds Crisis Messenger

The YoungMinds Crisis Messenger text service provides free, 24/7 crisis support across the UK. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis and need support, you can text YM to 85258.

We know that finding the right support is important, especially if you need someone to talk to right now. We aim to connect every texter to a trained volunteer promptly to provide crisis help. They will listen to you and help you think more clearly, enabling you to know that you can take the next step to feeling better.

It is free and confidential to text our service from the following major networks:

EE, O2, Three and Vodafone.

These include - BT Mobile, Tesco Mobile, Virgin Mobile, iD Mobile, Sky, Telecom Plus, Lebara and GiffGaff. Some Android phones issue a warning that you will be charged for texting us, provided you are on one of these networks this warning is incorrect and you will not be charged. If you text us from a network that is not on this list there is a possibility that you may be charged for the messages and that they may appear on your bill, this is because some networks do not provide the capability to message short codes.
