Mental health support

If you're experiencing mental health problems or need urgent support, there are lots of places you can turn to for help.

Here at Trafford Housing Trust we understand that accessing emotional support services can be daunting.

Negative attitudes stop people with mental health problems getting the help and support they need.

“If I could talk about how I'm feeling without being judged, or worse, thought worthless by others, it would make me feel better.” 

To help our customers, we can provide information and guidance about mental health services through the NHS, social care and voluntary services.

We have signed up to the Time to Change Campaign, a movement of people across the country who use their own experience of mental health problems to change the way we all think and act about mental health. If you would like to know more about the time for change campaign you can visit their website: www.time-to-change.org.uk/
