What to do in a Mental Health Emergency

In a crisis, it may feel as though you have not got nowhere to turn. You may be struggling to cope with negative thoughts and feelings, or you may be experiencing hallucinations or hearing voices that are distressing.

Although reaching out for support may feel like the last thing you want to do, talking to someone about how you are feeling can help you to see beyond overwhelming thoughts, feelings or experiences and get you the help that you need to feel a bit better. If you feel able to, you can reach out to a trusted friend or family member, or speak to a medical or mental health professional. Starting the conversation can be hard, but these people want to talk to you and help you to cope.
