We can’t be there in person to help and support you in a moment of crisis, but there are other options available to you if you can’t turn to someone you trust. By giving us your postcode (or one nearby to where you are right now) we can let you know about services in your area. Remember: this moment will pass; you won’t always feel the way you do right now.
If in doubt always call 999.

Talking is both over rated and under rated.
We ‘chat’ a lot – about weather, about bands, about what we saw on TV, about our friends, about clothes….
We ‘debate’ politics, religion, our own beliefs, what time we are allowed to stay out until…
But, do we actually ‘talk’?
Today is National ‘Time to Talk’ Day, so let’s do away with the ‘chat’, the ‘debate’, the ‘banter’ and talk.
Even if you talk to one person today, properly talk, that will help you – and them! Listening and talking is a conversation – it’s two way. We don’t talk into a vacuum (although when someone talks to me about cars, they might as well be!), we listen and then, we often share our own stories in response.
Today, when you start talking, you are giving someone else permission to talk too – it’s life giving for you and for them!
Start talking today!
