What to do if you’re in crisis:-
If you or someone you know is in crisis, there are many places you can turn to for help.
I am having thoughts of suicide and believe that I am in immediate danger:
- To talk to someone who is trained to listen, contact Samaritans on UK Helpline 116 123 free to call from land lines and mobiles even pay as you go within the Uk and Ireland. This number will not show up on your monthly bill. They are open 24 hours a day.
- Alternatively you can contact the bi-lingual CALL advice and listening line on 0800 132 737 CALL is open 24/7 and staff are trained to listen and have information on local crisis services.
- If you have a crisis card get that now and contact your support people.
I have taken an overdose or I am about to seriously harm or kill myself:
- Call 999. The call is free. You can ask to stay on the line while you wait for help to arrive.
- Alternatively you can go to the nearest Accident and Emergency department (A&E)
I fear that I am about to seriously harm or kill another person:
- Call 999 and ask for help.
- Alternatively you can go to the nearest hospital A&E.
Someone I know is in immediate danger of seriously harming themselves or endangering someone else:
- Contact social services on 0300 4561000 (day) or 0845 0533116 (evenings and weekends). They can arrange for the person to be assessed under the Mental Health Act. Please be aware that this could lead to the person being sectioned in hospital and treated without their consent.
- Call 999 if you cannot get through anywhere else
