Our services are not suitable to help in an emergency.
Please seek assistance form the emergency resources below - they will be able to help identify the best cause of action and get you the support you need immediately.
If you are concerned about an immediate risk of harm – either to yourself or someone else – then call 999 immediately.
If you feel unsafe and need immediate help, go to your nearest hospital with an Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department. The on-call local psychiatric team will be able to help you and are always available.
If you need help but can wait until the next day, then you should contact your GP who should be the first point of contact. They will direct you to the most appropriate NHS service for you.
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.
