Emergency mental health support

See your GP if:

  • you’ve been feeling depressed for more than a few weeks
  • your anxiety is affecting your daily life

If you want to talk to someone right away, this NHS Choices’ mental health helpline page has a list of organisations you can call for immediate help.

The Samaritans helpline is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for people who want to talk in confidence. Call 116 123 (free).

If you’re a young person who is struggling to cope or you’re finding it difficult to make sense of how you’re feeling, there are people who can help you. You can talk confidentially to Kooth to get the help you need. Alternatively, visit Big White Wall, the online mental health community that young people can access any time anywhere. Both these sites are designed for early intervention – first ports of call when problems arise. Acting as soon as possible can stop issues become more acute and serious.
Besides these there are many other resources available, see our webpage.

CALM is an award-winning charity dedicated to preventing male suicide.

If you’ve had thoughts of self-harming or are feeling suicidal, contact someone you can trust immediately, such as your GP, or a friend or relative.
