Are you having suicidal thoughts?

If your life is in immediate danger call 999 now.

If you are feeling very distressed or hopeless it's important to know that you are not alone. Talking to someone can help you see beyond how you're feeling right now. You could try talking to a family member or friend, or, if this doesn't feel right, there are people who want to talk to you and can help:

  • Call 111 (freephone, open 24 hours a day) - a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals, will ask you a series of questions and immediately direct you to the best service to support your needs.
  • Call the Connect helpline on 0808 800 1212 (freephone) which gives emotional support and information to people in Leeds every night of the year (6pm-2am).
  • Talk to the Samaritans on 116 123 (freephone, open 24 hours a day) if you need someone to listen at any time of the day or night.
