I Need Help Now

You might be looking at this site and be feeling desperate for help. Even if it is in the middle of the night you might feel you need help right now…

Are you feeling in crisis?

If you are in crisis, feeling suicidal or having thoughts of self harm we recommended that you:

  1. Contact your GP. If you are already receiving support from mental health services, contact your Community Mental Health Team.
  2. There are a number of phone lines that can help:
    • Samaritans on 116 123 for 24-hour confidential emotional support
    • Childline on 0800 11 11 for 24-hour confidential support to children and young people up to 18 years old.
  3. Go to your nearest A&E and ask to be seen by the duty Psychiatrist, who will be able to assess you and give you the appropriate help.
  4. If you are concerned about an immediate risk of harm and you don’t feel safe then phone 999 and ask for the police or ambulance service.
