The new service available to people across North and North East Lincolnshire and Hull and East Yorkshire helps support those who have been recently bereaved by a suspected suicide. Support can include CBT techniques, mindfulness guidance and talking and listening support. The service can also support with memory boxes, funeral planning and support, attending inquests and help with debts and finances. This service is offered to all ages and support will be tailored to each individual. Referrals can be made through contacting 01482 240200 or email by email@example.com. You can also find information at www.heymind.org.uk.
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.
