Out of Hours / Crisis Support
In an emergency it is possible to visit your local Accident and Emergency department and ask to see the duty psychiatrist. NHS Direct (0845 46 47) can also provide you with medical advice at any time of the day or night. Samaritans (08457 909090) provide 24 hour emotional support and Saneline (0845 767 8000) can provide information and crisis support. Saneline operates between 1pm to 11pm every day.
It is worth checking to see if the local Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) can provide a crisis support team contact.
