Are you in crisis?

A charity based on compassion, empathy, openness and honesty

​A mental health crisis is when you feel at breaking point and you need urgent help.  You might be:

  • feeling extremely anxious

  • having panic attacks or flashbacks

  • feeling suicidal or self-harming

  • having an episode of hypomania or mania (feeling very high) or psychosis (maybe hearing voices or feeling very paranoid).  

You might be dealing with:

  • bereavement

  • addiction

  • abuse

  • money problems

  • relationship breakdown

  • work place stress

  • exam stress or 

  • housing problems

You might be managing a mental health diagnosis or you might not know why you are feeling this way.

If any of the above apply to you and you need urgent help, get support without delay.

If you are in immediate danger of taking your own life, call 999 and ask for an ambulance.

Consider calling NHS 111 if you have an urgent medical need but are not sure what to do.
