Go to your nearest A&E:

Contact mental health services:
If you are already receiving support from mental health services you should have a care plan. This will include details of who you should contact in a crisis
If you can’t find your care plan, contact your our Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) during the day, 9am – 5pm from Monday to Friday. Ask for your care coordinator or the person on duty.
