CRISIS RESOURCES

DO YOU FEEL IN CRISIS?

If you need immediate support or feel suicidal - please know, you are not alone and there are people available to help. Please take a look at the following options in the UK and specifically London & Surrey

A range of specialist services are available that may be most suitable for you at this time. The contact information below focuses on 24hr emergency and crisis support, which is a service I am unable to offer.
If you feel you need support in navigating other specialist services in London and Surrey, please do get in contact.

EMERGENCIES - 999

In emergencies (feeling suicidal, feeling like you want to harm yourself or other people): If possible, walk to your nearest A&E department.

A list of your local department is on the button below.

If you judge yourself in crisis but not in an emergency situation - call NHS Direct (111) to receive assistance in locating your local crisis support services & nearest A&E.

SAMARITANS - 116 123

The Samaritans offer 24/7 emotional support to anyone feeling in crisis and may also be able to help if you worry about someone else. You can call, text, or email them anonymously - or receive helpful advice via their self-help app.

SANE LINE - 0300 304 7000

Sane Line offers specialist mental health emotional support via phone, email and text. They are available every day between 4pm - 10pm.

SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE

YoungMinds can be a very helpful resource for both young people, parents and carers. It offers specialist support hotlines, holds a range of contact resources and written information, in language we can all understand.

NHS MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

If you are currently unable to finance private therapy but understand that support is needed, please take a look at the NHS resources linked to the button below. Alternatively, speak with your GP as they may be able to refer you to a low-cost or a free short-term NHS counselling service (these are usually run by IAPT in the UK).

Green Forest

A SIMPLE BREATHING EXERCISE

When we panic our mind literally cannot function - conscious breathing helps us to reset and think about our next available steps.

When doing this exercise, remember to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.
