Call 999 or go to A&E

You should call 999 or go to the hospital 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."
