Help in a crisis
If your mental or emotional state quickly gets worse or deteriorates, this can be called a ‘mental health crisis’. In this situation, it may be important to get help quickly.
If you feel your needs constitute an emergency (significant and immediate risk to life and/or limb) and you are not able to access any support from the above then please go to your nearest Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department. A mental health practitioner will be able to assess you and give you appropriate help.
If you are concerned about an immediate risk of self-harm or your physical health is at a significant risk because of overdose or injury, it may be necessary to call 999 for an ambulance.
