Talk to Someone about your Mental Health

If you need to talk to someone, here are a number of helplines you can contact for confidential non-judgemental support.

If you or someone you know is at risk of suicide or self-harm, you should make contact immediately with one of the following:

  • Phone or go to your local doctor 
  • Go to the Accident & Emergency department of the nearest hospital
  • Call 999

Most helplines will provide a listening service, give information and advice, provide emotional support and point you in the direction of other services. They are often free-phone services which are staffed by trained volunteers or employees.
