If you are in immediate danger of harming yourself or others, call 999. An ambulance may be called if appropriate, and they will advise whether you should go to A&E.
Otherwise, you can access urgent mental health support by:
- Requesting an urgent appointment with your GP (GPs are offering video/phone consultations)
- Contacting your local NHS Mental Health Crisis Number – enter the borough, county or town where you are currently living and ‘Mental Health Crisis Line’ into your search engine (see details for Tower Hamlets)
- Calling Samaritans on 116 123 (24 hours, 365 days a year)
The Advice and Counselling Service is not able to offer emergency support in a mental health crisis. For this type of support, see Crisis Support Services below:
