Urgent Help

The IAPT Helthy Mind Service is not an emergency service so if you feel you are deteriorating or having thoughts of suicide it is important you keep yourself safe and get some help.
 

IN AN EMERGENCY 

Call 999 or go to A&E now if:

  • Someone’s life is at risk – for example they have seriously injured themselves or taken an overdose
  • You do not feel you can keep yourself or someone else safe

A mental health emergency should be taken as seriously as a physical one. You will not be wasting anyone's time.
