Suicide

If you are feeling suicidal it is important that you try to talk to someone as soon as possible.

You could TALK to:

  • a family member, friend or colleague - sharing how you feel can bring huge relief
  • a helpful advisor – telephone a helpline in complete confidence and anonymously
  • your doctor – they may be able to help or signpost you to specialist help
  • your mental health care team - if you are already seeing a psychiatrist, psychologist or community psychiatric nurse.

Getting help

If you are feeling suicidal it is extremely important to talk to someone about it and try to get professional help. Start by seeing your GP and asking for advice.

If you know someone has attempted suicide you should call 999 immediately or you can go to A&E if possible. A doctor or psychiatric team will assess the situation.
