Mental health charities offer support to frontline

22 May 2020

Mind, Samaritans, Shout, Hospice UK and the Royal Foundation (of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) have launched a mental health support service for frontline and key workers.

Our Frontline will support staff whose mental health could suffer under the pressure of Covid-19 and in the future.

The service offers round-the-clock one-to-one support by call or text from trained volunteers, as well as online resources and mental health toolkits.

The charities will be working with employers, charities and representative groups.

The Duke of Cambridge said: ‘Every day [frontline workers] confront traumatic situations at the same time as having to contend with their own worries about the risks to themselves and their families.’
