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.


If you intend to harm yourself now, please get yourself to safe place, call someone and let them know where you are, and how you are feeling.




Telephone Support - 


I am unfortunately unable to provide a 24/7 phone support. If you can't wait til our next meeting and are feeling you need to talk, please consider one of the following options;


Samaritans are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to listen to anything that is upsetting you, including intrusive thoughts of suicide. Their national freephone number is 116123, or you can email jo@samaritans.org.


CALM. If you're a man experiencing distressing thoughts or feelings, the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is there to support you. They're open from 5pm - Midnight, 365 days a year, their national number is 0800 58 58 58 - they also have a webchat service if you feel uncomfortable talking on the phone.
