If you are having a mental health crisis or worried you might hurt yourself please get help now. You can contact these organisations:
First response service
If you are scared about harming yourself or feel you are at serious risk to yourself you can call the emergency services on 111 – and choose option 2. A Mental Health Professional will assess your situation and will provide you with information on what to do or where to go. You can call this number even if you have no credit on your phone. It is entirely free.
This is the first response service and is for anyone, of any age, living in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. Specially trained mental health staff will speak to you and discuss with you your mental health care needs – instead of you having to go to accident and emergency departments of local hospitals.
