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 many of our customers suffer from mental health problems.

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

If your mental health is impacting on your ability to manage your tenancy call us and ask to speak to your Tenancy Sustainment Officer.
