The contact number for Children and Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Services in

Updated: May 9, 2023




The phone number for the Emotional Wellbeing Mental Health Service (EWMHS) for children and young people in Essex, provided by North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT), has changed.


From the 2nd of August 2021 the new number is: 0800 953 0222. This is a Freephone number. If you call out of hours, please use the new 0800 number which will divert you to our main switchboard.


The service is available to children and young people, and their families or carers, across Essex to access mental health and emotional wellbeing care and support.

If service users call the old number, 0300 300 1600, they will hear a message confirming the new Freephone number and be asked to redial.
