If you’re in a mental health crisis, you need help quickly.

There’s no ‘one size fits all’ for a crisis and they can take many forms. You may have suicidal thoughts, be thinking about or actively self-harming, or feel like you’re in any other mental health emergency.

If you need urgent help, call the Single Point of Access on (01472) 256256 and select option three to get in touch with our crisis team. They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Alternatively, you can call NHS 111 free from any landline or mobile phone.

You might already be accessing support from one of our services. If so, you should contact your care coordinator straight away.

If you’re in immediate physical danger or have a medical emergency, call 999 now.
