If you need immediate help to stay safe, or are supporting someone who needs immediate help:

  • Call your GP – ask for an emergency appointment
  • Call 111 out of hours – they will help you find the support and help you need

If you have seriously harmed yourself – for example, by taking a drug overdose – call 999 for an ambulance or go straight to A&E. Or ask someone else to call 999 or take you to A&E.
