CrisisIf you are experiencing a crisis and need help now then please keep reading. Being in a crisis means that you may not feel that in this moment you are able to cope with life and keep yourself or others safe. You may be feeling suicidal, you may have harmed yourself in a way that you cannot manage, you may be feeling extreme anxiety or be experiencing worsening symptoms of a mental health problem you have been diagnosed with.

If this is how you are feeling then we would suggest that you make contact with a crisis service. These services are here for you at times such as these and should not judge you for making contact but should listen and try to help you to access the support you need now.

Who can I contact?

In an emergency you should dial 999 and ask for help or go to your local Accident and Emergency service (A&E).
