Emergency Support

Counselling can help someone who is having suicidal thoughts by exploring their feelings, thoughts and beliefs; identify the things and support that keep them safe; thinking about triggers and patterns; prevention planning and so on.  However, counselling is not an emergency service at the time of crisis.  If you, or someone you know, are in crisis or immediate risk of danger, please call 999 / go to your local A&E department or contact one of the organisations below.
