What to do in an Emergency

If you think that you are at risk of harm to yourself or to/from others, then we advise you to go your nearest A&E department.

Or, please contact our Single Point of Access service (Crisis Line). The service offers mental health assessments for routine, urgent and emergency referrals. The line is open 24 hours a day.
