In crisis? Feeling desperate?
If you are in crisis, there are many places you can turn to for help and a variety of services and support available to help you.
Confide in someone
We know that talking and sharing your worries and feelings is really important, so talking to a friend, colleague or family member can help you to feel like you are not alone. Being with or in contact with someone you trust can be very reassuring.
Contact your GP
An important starting point is to visit your GP. If you want to book an emergency appointment use the 'Find Your Nearest' resource below to find your GP's number. Out of normal working hours you can contact the CHOC service detailed below.
Contact your Key worker
If you already have a key worker or support worker, Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN) or Social Worker you should contact them first, they will already have some knowledge about you.
If you do not know how to contact them ring the Cumbria Partnership Direct number shown below.
Call a Helpline
The Samaritans have a 24-hour telephone helpline offering confidential emotional support. Other helplines can be found in our Helplines resource section.
