For difficulties with your mental health:
In the event of an emergency situation, you or your carer should dial 999.
The mental health service provides emergency support via the A&E departments.
If you already have a point of contact for your mental health needs, then that is who you should contact in the first instance.
For all other problems with your mental health, you benefit for a regional service called "Healthy Minds".
Healthy Minds offers a self-referral service.

Although we work closely together to care for you, the Mental Health Service and the General Practice elements of the NHS are separate and you do not need to see your GP to access this Healthy Minds service.

If you are suffering with loss, for example following death, separation, redundancy or a sudden change in your personal circumstances, bereavement support services can help you.
