Do you feel suicidal?

If you are feeling suicidal, there are people who can help.

  • Speak to those around you about why you feel like this.
  • See your GP, who can help you directly and enlist the help of other health professionals.
  • There may be a drop-in service run by the local mental health team or social services, with people who can see you at home. Contact numbers should be in the phone book, or telephone your local health trust. Your GP will know these numbers too.
  • Call a crisis line such as Samaritans, a confidential telephone counselling service that’s available 24 hours a day.
  • If you need to see someone straight away, contact your doctor’s surgery or visit A&E at your local hospital.
