Open Mental Health is a Somerset alliance of local voluntary organisations, the NHS and social care. We are working in partnership to ensure that residents of Somerset get the support they need, when they need it.
Lots of things can impact our mental health. We have come together to provide 24/7 support to adults in Somerset. Whatever the worry - anxiety, debt, employment, housing, low mood, addiction - we're here to help.
Open Mental Health supports people to live a full life by enabling access to specialist mental health support, debt and employment advice, volunteering opportunities, community activities, and exercise.
Our service is available to adults in Somerset who are experiencing mental health problems. The organisations in the alliance form part of a wider ecosystem of mental health and wellbeing support across somerset. By working in partnership, we want to ensure that there is 'no wrong door' for anyone who needs help.
Anybody who is in need of mental health support can call Mindline Somerset on 0800 138 1692 (freephone) or 01823 276892 (local call rate) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or email SUPPORT@OPENMENTALHEALTH.ORG.UK.

Our peer support groups
Our groups are run by volunteers, many of who have lived experience of mental illness either personally or in a caring role. We have over one hundred and forty groups meeting across the country and everyone is unique because they grow and develop according to the needs and aspirations of those who use them.

Our mental health training
Mental health training is one of our key ways of changing the experience of people affected by poor mental health in this country. We aim to enable people to feel more comfortable and confident to talk about mental health and know more about how to respond when problems arise.
