We all need support sometimes. If you are in a mental health crisis, or know someone who is, then here below are some ways you can get help.
If you, or someone you know, are at immediate risk of harming themselves or others, then please ring 999.
If you, or the person you’re concerned about, is already in contact with NHS mental health services, they or you should have a care plan which outlines what to do in a crisis. This might be to contact your GP or the Adult Mental Health Team that supports you.
If you or someone you know are experiencing a crisis and need urgent mental health support, please call 111 or visit www.111.nhs.uk and speak to the NHS Mental Health Triage Service.
The NHS 111 mental health triage service provides advice, support and guidance, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for anyone living in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. The team has a wide range of skills, including on the phone brief psychological support and has access to key services and organisations that can offer mental health support to people in their time of need.
This service can also be also used by GPs and other healthcare professionals, the emergency services, mental health charities and any other organisations that come into contact with people experiencing a mental health crisis.
In South West Hampshire including Eastleigh, the New Forest, Hedge End etc. you can contact the South West Safe Haven for informal, non-judgemental, out-of-hours mental health support.
