Having a mental health crisis means different things to different people. You might feel so distressed that you want to harm yourself, or someone else. You might hear unpleasant voices, or feel that people are watching you or trying to hurt you.
It could help to tell someone you trust, maybe a family member or a friend. They can be with you and help you decide what to do. They can also contact services on your behalf.
Check your care plan, if you have one, and:
during office hours contact your care co-ordinator or the duty number for the team that is supporting you. If you don't have their details, visit our service finder
out of hours call 0800 731 2864 to speak to our mental health crisis line
Please do not call 111 or visit A&E if you are in mental health crisis, instead contact us through the information above or below.
