I'm in crisis


If you are facing the sudden death of a friend, colleague or family member - please use the Sudden Death Association website for access to resources to help you through this difficult time.  

If you find yourself in a mental health crisis, there are a number of options available to you. 

If you or anyone else is in immediate danger of hurting themselves or others, or appear to have lost all sense of reality: 

  • Go directly to the Accident & Emergency (A&E) department of your local hospital to get help, they have trained professionals  who will be able to assess your situation and provide appropriate support
  • Call 999 to request an ambulance if you are unable to reach the hospital yourself. Paramedics not only deal with physical health emergencies, but also mental health emergencies too

If you're feeling distressed and need urgent support: 

  • Contact your GP surgery to request an emergency appointment
  • If your GP surgery isn't open, call the free NHS out-of-hours medical line on 111 and they will help you access the right services
  • You can call the Samaritans on 116 123 to talk to someone at any time, day or night

If there is a threat to life - call 999 for emergency help IMMEDIATELY. 

Student support contacts can help you identify local support.
