Get mental health support
Isle Listen is not a crisis service and only offers planned interventions. Should you or someone you know be in need of immediate support outside of our office hours you should contact Manx Care’s 24 hour Crisis Response and Home Treatment Team on 01624 642860 or the Emergency Services on 999.
It can be worrying when you, or someone you care about, are experiencing a difficult time. For more information about a mental health condition, visit our support pages for useful information and advice to look after and support mental health and wellbeing.
Unfortunately, there will be occasions where we are unable to assist with certain mental health problems, or where more specialist support is needed and there are many local charities, other third sector organisations and Government departments who may be better-placed to help.
If you have Safeguarding concerns regarding:
- a Child, please contact 01624 686179 (office hours) or 01624 631212 (out of hours – Police Headquarters) and ask for the duty social worker.
- an Adult, please contact 01624 685959 (office hours) or 01624 650000 (out of hours – Nobles Hospital Switchboard) and ask for the duty social worker.

We also offer a low-level one-to-one Listening Service in all secondary schools where one of our Wellbeing Practitioners can help you manage your feelings with concerns such as exam pressure, friendship worries, bullying, social media difficulties and low self-esteem.
If you feel you need support with how you’re feeling, you can either email us for advice or make a referral to our Listening Service.
We know looking after children and young people isn’t always easy. Whilst it is incredibly rewarding watching them grow up, it can feel especially difficult if their mood and behaviour seems different and you’re not sure why, or what you can do to help.
Visit our support pages for parents/carers as well as our information and helpful resources pages. We also offer regular ‘drop ins’ at our Centres in Douglas and Castletown, where you can come along and informally chat to members of our schools and therapeutic teams about any worries, concerns or unanswered questions you might have about a young person’s mental health and wellbeing.
If you feel a young person is in need of support with how they’re feeling, you can make a referral to our service.
