As a training organisation we do not provide emergency support on an individual basis, BUT there are lot of people who can. Here’s a list of contacts for individual or emergency support for those in crisis.
If you feel like harming or hurting yourself or other people:
- Call 999
- Go to your nearest Accident and Emergency (A&E)
A free number to call if you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. They can direct you to your local crisis support services and also offer health advice 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
