Over the Christmas period, MS-UK will be closed from 5pm on Wednesday 23 December until 9am on Monday 04 January 2016. During this time, our Helpline will be closed as well.
If you need to talk, about anything, during this time, there are several organisations which offer support over the telephone or online.
You can visit the Samaritans website at www.samaritans.org or call 116 123 (UK) 24/7, 365 days a year. Samaritans can help you explore your options so you can make decisions that are right for you.
The Mind Infoline is open on Christmas Eve until 4pm, then reopens on Tuesday 29 December. Visit the Mind website at www.mind.org.uk/information-support/helplines or call 0300 123 3393.
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It is free to call, and you can speak to an advisor about your symptoms and seek medical help in a non life-threatening situation. This is open 24/7, 365 days a year.
Visit the NHS 111 web page at www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/AboutNHSservices/Emergencyandurgentcareservices/Pages/NHS-111.aspx or call 111.
Wishing you a safe and happy Christmas and New Year, and we’ll see you all in 2016!
