Open Mental Health

Spark Somerset is a proud member of Open Mental Health, an alliance of local voluntary organisations and the NHS

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 suffering from 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 16922, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or email

Open Mental Health is looking to expand the provision of support in Somerset by inviting local organisations to apply for a Community Grant. Up to £15k funding is available for projects that focus on improving the mental health and wellbeing of Somerset residents. Find out more here.
