If you have thoughts of hurting yourself or taking your own life, it’s very important to talk to a GP, or other health professional, as soon as possible. They can then put the right support in place for you. If you cannot wait for an urgent GP appointment: call NHS 111 (free, open 24 hours a day) – a highly trained adviser will ask you a series of questions and immediately direct you to the best service to support your needs.
