Mental health problems could be stress, anxiety, depression or something else – but the important thing to remember is you are not alone. Support is out there for you.
It’s also important to know how to stay mentally well, or where to find the resources that can help, as well as know how to refer people to services. We’ve gathered a number of resources below, both national and local. We are continually adding to this list.
For mental health emergencies, call 999 or go to A&E now if:
- someone’s life is at risk – for example, they have seriously injured themselves or taken an overdose
- you do not feel you can keep yourself or someone else safe
A mental health emergency should be taken as seriously as a physical one. You will not be wasting anyone’s time.
If you have an emergency out of hours, please call the RDaSH Mental Health support (Crisis Team) on 0800 015 0211. They also have a text service for anyone unable to use the standard telephone line (i.e. deaf or hard of hearing); you can text 07918 372894.
