If you, or someone you know, is in need of emergency ‘Emotional First Aid’, perhaps:

  • struggling with overwhelm and not knowing which way to turn or what to do
  • feeling at crisis point
  • contemplating self-harm or suicide

please reach out for help. Below you will find a number of contact numbers and resources offering ‘in the moment’ support.
