New Listening Service for Adults

We are still here to help during this difficult time.

Our new Listening Service for adults is now available. This service is for anyone who lives in Manchester, who is over 25, and struggling with their mental health, social isolation, worries and anxieties.

If you are struggling please contact us to talk to someone who will take the time to listen and understand, and let you know if there are any further services that may be helpful to you.

To access this service please ring 0161 769 5732 between 10am and 2pm (if our phone lines are busy or you call outside of these hours please leave a message and someone will get back to you).

You can also email [email protected] and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

“The listening ear service has really helped me, and over a short amount of time. When I first called, I really needed someone to talk to, and I really appreciated that someone was available so quickly. The fact that it is available and easy to access is a lifeline.

I found it easy to talk, like I could open up because I was being listened to.  I feel this service has helped me to look at other avenues for support with counselling. I have now taken action with other agencies and my GP to support my mental health in future and I feel happy that I have a plan.

It has been a positive experience and from feeling desperate at the beginning, I now feel more positive overall. It has even helped me to speak more confidently in other areas of my life, and with other people.       

I have accessed advice support with Manchester Mind previously and this was also very helpful. All my experiences with Manchester Mind have been positive and I would use their services again in future. I am particularly interested in any groups that may take place in future to allow me some time for myself and to meet, and talk to other people.”                                                                                      


We have a separate service for young people aged 15-25 years old with full information provided here.

For urgent help please see further information available here.

This service has been kindly supported by the Pears Foundation and DCMS Community Match Challenge as part of the Government’s £750m charities package.
