If you’re struggling to cope or having suicidal thoughts 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.

If you cannot wait for an urgent GP appointment: call NHS 111 (free, open 24 hours a day) – a trained adviser will ask you a series of questions and direct you to the best service to support your needs.
