The Manchester Resilience Hub is an enhanced NHS mental health service set up specifically to help people from across the UK who have been affected by the Manchester Arena attack, including concert goers, children, families and professionals. The service is hosted by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, working with other NHS and voluntary sector agencies.

As well as running the wellbeing screening programme for those involved in the attack, the Hub provides a central point for mental health advice and support. It does not provide one-to-one therapy; where this is needed clinicians in the Hub work with other providers across the country to help people receive the care they need from services close to where they live.

People can phone the hub between 9am – 5pm on 03330 095 071 Monday to Friday or email If the team are unable to answer your call immediately, you will have the option of leaving a message and someone will call you back as soon as possible. You can also leave a message outside of opening hours on this number.

If you are struggling to keep yourself well, please seek advice either from your GP, NHS 111 or in an emergency visit A&E at your local hospital.
