What should I do if I am having a crisis or am feeling unwell?

Like most organisations, we do have a waiting list and with this in mind if you are having suicidal feelings or feel you are struggling to cope, you should contact your GP and he or she will advise you on the best course of action. Alternatively go to your local hospital’s Accident and Emergency department. More details can be found in the Get Help section under In-Crisis.

You may choose to call a phone line – this will give you chance to speak to someone immediately. Some operate 24 hours a day such as:

Samaritans
Tel: 116 123

Sane
Tel: 0845 767 8000

The sooner you get in touch and let someone know how you are feeling, the better.
