If you are concerned that someone you know may be experiencing suicidal thoughts, we encourage you to open up this conversation with them directly.

 If you are currently in a mental health crisis or feeling acutely suicidal and concerned that you cannot keep yourself safe, you need to call 111 and select option 2 or call 999. If you are under 18 call 0300 300 1600.
