Urgent help

We don’t provide urgent help services at Mental Health at Work. However, if you or a colleague require urgent information, guidance, help or support, there are a few options depending on your situation.

You need urgent help for yourself

If you feel unable to keep yourself safe and need immediate help, use the emergency services. You can do this by calling 999 for an ambulance or by taking yourself to your nearest Accident & Emergency (A&E) department.

If you’re not sure which crisis service you need, Mind has information on other crisis services. This page lists the telephone numbers and contact details for a number of support services.

If you need urgent help for yourself, Mind’s Urgent help tool provides activities and resources to help you understand and manage your situation.
