Urgent Help

Unite Mental Health does not provide therapy or crisis support.

It is never a good idea to be alone when you are having difficulty. If in an emergency, if you have harmed yourself or someone else, or are worried that you might, you may wish to contact one of the following:

Accident and Emergency (A&E)

  • Take yourself directly there (if it’s too far to walk you could take public transport, call a taxi, or ask a friend to give you a lift).
  • Call 999 if you need an ambulance.

NHS Direct

If you don’t feel you need to go to A&E, but you need medical help or advice fast and can’t wait for an emergency GP appointment, you can call NHS 111. There are a number of helplines across England should you not wish to talk to a family member or close friend about things that are so very difficult and/or personal. If this is the case and you are struggling, you could try one of the following help lines:
