Need urgent help?
In an emergency
If you don’t feel you can keep yourself safe right now, seek immediate help:
- go to any Accident & Emergency (A&E) department
- call 999 and ask for an ambulance to take you to A&E
- ask someone else to call 999 for you or take you to A&E
If you need urgent support but don’t want to go to A&E, you can:
- call Samaritans on freephone 116 123 – they are always open and are there to listen
- contact your GP surgery and ask for an emergency appointment
- contact NHS 111 (England) or NHS Direct 0845 46 47 (Wales)
- contact your local crisis team (CRHT), if you’re under their care
