If you feel suicidal or feel like harming yourself or other people, call 999 or go to your nearest Accident and Emergency Department (A&E).
Your GP surgery will usually provide an answer phone message advising you of who to contact in an emergency, together with other useful telephone numbers.
We know that talking about your mental health can be difficult. The video below will talk you through how to have that first conversation with your GP.
