The Southern Health PR and Media Team is open for enquiries from journalists and members of the media from Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm.
PLEASE NOTE: during these extraordinary circumstances - as we treat patients with coronavirus and prepare our services for an unprecedented increase in demand - we ask that our media colleagues bear with us if we take longer than usual to respond to media requests and enquiries. Our priority has to be communications with our 6,000+ staff and their patients.
We are currently home working, please email us with your contact number if you would like us to call you.
The email inbox is checked regularly during our opening hours. We will respond to you as quickly as possible. For urgent enquiries please telephone us directly.
We ask that Journalists and members of the media contact the Media Team in the first instance and do not approach our front line staff directly.
If you would like to film or take photos of one of our services or sites, please speak to the team first. This is to protect the privacy of our patients and staff.
Mental health reporting
Journalists looking for information on the most appropriate ways of reporting emotional crises or mental health issues - including suicide - may like to refer to the guidelines by the Samaritans which are supported by most media organisations and professional bodies.
