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.

Free listening services
These services offer confidential advice from trained volunteers. You can talk about anything that’s troubling you, no matter how difficult:
- Call 116 123 to talk to Samaritans, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for a reply within 24 hours
- Text “SHOUT” to 85258 to contact the Shout Crisis Text Line, or text “YM” if you’re under 19
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.
