I got a great deal of support and understanding when I thought no one could, and confidence to speak up for myself without feeling it was wrong or that I should just accept things.

I Need Help Now

If you are feeling suicidal or in crisis the best thing is to talk. Speak to somebody you trust or contact a service who can offer you support. If you think that somebody that you know might be suicidal – ask them.

The National Mind Booklets How to Cope with Suicidal Feelings and Suicide - Supporting Someone Else both have lots of helpful information.

You can contact your GP or call the NHS 111 number who can help you to access specialist mental health telephone or face to face support.

If you are known to mental health services and need urgent mental health support you can contact your care co-ordinator. At the evenings and weekends, you can contact BURS  on 242220
