Mental health service launches for Manchester attack victims

A new dedicated service has been set up by the NHS for anyone struggling mentally or emotionally following the Manchester Arena attack.

The Manchester Resilience Hub is open to immediate victims including those injured,  who attended the event, family members and emergency professionals involved in the response to the terror attack.

Some people may be able to function well for some time afterwards but may develop mental health problems later, sometimes much later.

Trauma comes in many shapes and sizes and the professional support will be personalised to the individual. The Manchester Resilience Hub is hosted by Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust. It is staffed by trained mental health professionals who are experts at helping people who have experienced a traumatic event.
