I need help

If you are in imminent danger of taking your own life, harming yourself or harming someone else, please stop long enough to read this…

When you are feeling desperate or in crisis, talk to someone, tell them how you feel and remember it’s okay to ask for help during difficult times.

If you can’t confide in someone you know…

  • talk to your GP
  • dial 999 or go to your nearest Accident and Emergency department (A&E)
  • get in touch with your local crisis home treatment team if you have one
  • speak to someone who is trained to listen

We have included some useful contact details below including the Samaritans and emergency services.
