If you are in a state of crisis, if you feel that you can no longer cope, or that you are a risk to yourself or others, you must seek IMMEDIATE EXPERT ASSESSMENT.

If you have a Crisis Line number, given to you by a health professional, please call it.

If you are already receiving support from NHS mental health services you should follow your care plan. Your plan will include details of who you should contact in a crisis.

If you can’t find your care plan, please contact your community mental health team and ask for your care coordinator. If you do not have a care plan please call your local crisis support services.
