Mental health: information, advice and support

Phone 999 if you think you or someone else might be in danger. If you are in crisis or need to talk to someone urgently about your mental health, go to the urgent help with mental health page.

If you’re not in crisis but you're worried about your emotional and mental wellbeing or worried about someone you care about who has mental health problems, talk to your GP who can refer you to mental health services in your area.  

If you want to get some advice yourself, here’s some useful information and contacts.
