New online mental health service launched to support Oldhamers
Date published: 18 January 2022
The service is available 24/7 online
A new online-based service to help support people struggling with low mood and mental health challenges has been launched in Oldham.
Togetherall is a free and anonymous service, offering online support and wellbeing resources that can be accessed 24/7.
The service provides safe online support with a range of wellbeing tools and guidance to help users better understand how they are feeling and why. Togetherall is free to residents aged 16 and over, and aims to support Oldhamers in their journey towards better mental health and wellbeing.
Councillor Zahid Chauhan, Oldham Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care, said: "I’m proud that we’ve partnered with Togetherall to provide much needed support for Oldham residents. It’s been an undeniably tough time during the Covid pandemic which has put a strain on many people’s mental health. That’s why Oldham Council has paid for all of our residents to access this support service completely free of charge.
"Nobody should have to struggle alone and this service will enable people to get 24/7 mental health support and advice from a like-minded community. There are no waiting lists or hidden costs, just no judgement anonymous support for you whenever you need it.
"In Oldham, we’re aiming to lead the way on mental health and wellbeing support for residents and I’m glad we’re taking another step towards that goal.”

Togetherall is a tool for additional support and not a crisis service.
