Urgent Assistance

At Mental Health Welfare, we don't offer immediate crisis help services. However, if you or a colleague need urgent information, advice, assistance, or support, there are various options based on your circumstances.

If your life is at risk right now

If you feel like you might attempt suicide, or may have seriously harmed yourself, you need urgent medical help. Please:

  • Call 999 for an ambulance

  • Go straight to A&E, if you can

  • Call your local crisis team - if you don't already have their number, you can find an urgent mental health helpline on the NHS website

 

If you can't do this by yourself, ask someone to help you.

Mental health emergencies are serious.
You're not wasting anyone's time.

Urgent Help for Yourself

If you're feeling unsafe and need urgent assistance, contact the emergency services. Dial 999 for an ambulance or head to the nearest Accident & Emergency (A&E) department.

OR HOW BAD IT SEEMS TODAY,
