Urgent help

If urgent help is required:

  • Call an ambulance on 999 or help them to get to A&E.
  • Stay with the person if you are able, and continue to talk with them, if you can.

If the person can keep themself safe for a short while, but is still in need of urgent help, you can:

  • Dial 111 on your phone and speak to the NHS Mental Health Triage Service. It is free and open 24/7.
  • Contact their GP surgery and ask for an emergency appointment.
