Crisis Support

Thoughts and Feelings

If you don't feel you can keep yourself safe right now, seek immediate help:

- Go to any Accident & Emergency (A&E) Department

- Call 999 and ask for an ambulance

- Ask someone else to call 999 for you or take you to A&E

 

If you need urgent support but don't want to go to A&E, you could:

- Text the Young Minds Crisis Messenger, for free 24/7, by texting the words YM to 85258 

- Call the Samaritans for free on 116 123 or email jo@samaritans.org

- Contact your GP and ask for an emergency appointment

- Contact NHS 111 (England)

- Download the 'Stay Alive' app to your mobile phone

 

The NHS harmless tool can help those supporting young people to assess possible risk and can be found at www.harmless.nhs.uk/assessment
