If you are in a mental health crisis, or know someone who is, then here are some ways you can get help.
If someone is in immediate danger
If you, or someone you know, are at immediate risk of harming themselves or others, then please ring 999.
For other crisis situations
The first step in getting help can often be speaking to your GP. All GP surgeries will have a ‘duty GP’ to deal with emergencies, and you can contact the surgery to make an emergency appointment to see them or speak to them on the phone. Outside of normal working hours, you can access the out-of-hours GP service by ringing 111.
If you, or the person you’re concerned about, is already in contact with NHS mental health services, then you should have a care plan which outlines what to do in a crisis. This might be to contact your GP or the Adult Mental Health Team that supports you.
