Urgent mental health support - Crisis Line

01925 275309

If you need urgent mental health help, please call the above dedicated local crisis lines and NHS staff will support you to access the help you need:

The crisis lines are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are open to people of all ages – including children and young. You can self refer or be referred by a profesional


The crisis lines are now the first port of call for mental health crisis help – it is operated by people in your local area who will know how best to support you. If you call NHS111 you may have to wait longer for help and will be redirected to this local service

Please note, A&E and 999 are not the best places to get help for the majority of mental health problems – call our crisis line to be directed to the best local service to support you

You should still call 999 or go to A&E if you have a life-threatening emergency requiring immediate mental or physical health assistance
