Mental Health Crisis Useful Contacts

Mental Health Crisis Emergency Help

SurreyTherapies are staffed to help people with their longer term mental health, rather than with urgent mental health crisis or mental health emergencies.

But we hope this page can provide some useful options if you have an emergency.

What is a Mental Health Crisis?

A mental health crisis is when you are really struggling with thoughts or feelings and need urgent help.

Mental health crisis might include feeling like:

  • You are about to take your your life.
  • You are about to harm yourself.
  • You are about to harm someone else.
  • You are hearing or seeing things that other people can’t hear or see.
  • You are having a first panic attack.
  • You are having a first flashback.

Who Can Help With A Mental Health Crisis?

There are many organisations that can help, if you are having a mental health crisis.

While we can’t endorse external services, you should consider options such as:

  • Go to A&E at the hospital. This is free and always open.
  • Call and ask for the ambulance or police.
  • A GP or emergency GP for your local doctor surgery.
  • Samaritans – free call 116 123 or email to tell them about your problem.
  • SANEline – call on 0300 304 7000 (4.30pm–10.30pm every day).
  • National Suicide Prevention Helpline UK on 0800 689 5652 (open 24/7).
