Getting help if you’re feeling suicidal in England or Wales

If you experience a mental health crisis (when you no longer feel able to cope or are not in control of your situation) and you are not under the care of a mental health team, you can get help by dialling 111, booking an emergency GP appointment, visiting A&E or calling 999.

There is also information on the NHS website about feeling suicidal and its causes, as well as advice on where to get help in this situation, and information and advice about what you can do if you're worried someone else is suicidal.

Mind offer advice and information about suicidal feelings and provide information about other organisations where you can seek help. You can also call their infoline on 0300 123 3393 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 6am), or visit their A-Z section for answers to common questions.
