P3 Mental Health Triage

This service offers a free 24/7 helpline for people in Derbyshire and Derby City who require advice about mental health.

Based within the Derbyshire Mental Health Triage Hub, trained P3 support staff are on hand to answer calls from members of the public.

We tailor our response to each caller's situation. This may include:

 Listening, advice and guidance

  • Practical support ideas
  • De-escalation of crisis
  • Encouragement to explore self-help options
  • Community-based resources which may be able to help
  • Onward referrals and a follow-up call if required

Our first response will be to try to avoid the need for a clinical intervention where possible; however, we are working alongside NHS clinical staff who can give advice or take ownership of calls where this is needed. 

 Who we support:

Support is available to people of any age living in Derbyshire/Derby City and experiencing mental health difficulties or concerns.

The number to reach this service is
