If you are worried about a mental health problem or about someone else's mental health then there are many places to go for help.
If you are worried about your own mental health and want to speak to someone then you can always approach your doctor. If you have a good relationship with your GP (family doctor), you may find it helpful just to know there is someone you can talk to about the feelings you are having. Your doctor may refer you to specialist services like counselling if they feel they will help you. If you are unhappy with your own doctor, you can ask to see another doctor at the same practice or make an appointment with a different practice in your area. Your school nurse can also help you and there may also be a school counsellor at your school.
If you feel it is a very urgent situation and you think you are at immediate risk to yourself than that you can go to your A&E department or call 999.
There are many helplines you can call or excellent websites you can go to for help or information.
