Mental Health Crisis Support

If you feel you need some urgent mental health support, it is available 24/7, 365 days a year…
Do not hesitate to use the services available to you.

If your life is at risk right now

If you feel like you might attempt suicide, or may have seriously harmed yourself, you need urgent medical help. Please:

  • Call 999 for an ambulance
  • Go straight to A&E, if you can
  • or call your local crisis team, if you have their number.

If you can’t do this by yourself, ask someone to help you. Mental health emergencies are serious. You’re not wasting anyone’s time.


We provide advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. We campaign to improve services, raise awareness
and promote understanding
