Get Emergency Help Now

If you feel like you might attempt suicide, or may have seriously harmed yourself, you need urgent medical help. Please:

  • Call 999 for an ambulance
  • Go straight to A&E if you can
  • Or call your local crisis team, if you have their number

If you can’t do this by yourself, ask someone to help you.

If you can keep yourself safe for a short while, but you still need urgent advice:

  • Contact NHS 111 if you live in England
  • Contact NHS 111 or NHS Direct (0845 46 47) if you live in Wales
  • Contact NHS 111 if you live in Scotland
  • Contact NHS 111 if you live in Northern Ireland
  • Contact your GP surgery and ask for an emergency appointment. Many GPs are now offering these remotely because of coronavirus.
  • Contact a local urgent mental health helpline. These are only currently available in England.
