Help in a crisis

We do not provide a treatment or care service or advice for those in crisis.

If you are in crisis or feeling suicidal, we urge you to seek help from your general practitioner, from your local hospital emergency department, through a telephone helpline service, or by discussing your problems with a friend or colleague.

We are also not able to discuss individual cases.
