THIS WEBSITE IS NOT INTENDED FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING MEDICAL ADVICE OR DIAGNOSIS
Medical conditions are complex, as are people, and the Internet is not necessarily a good place to seek diagnosis or make choices about treatment.
So please always apply common sense. Illness can interfere with good decision-making and objective self-assessment. Our best advice if you are reading this website and you believe you need psychiatric help or counselling is to contact your GP and make an appointment.
If you have a medical/psychiatric emergency, call your doctor or 999 immediately. Don't delay. A mental health emergency should be taken as seriously as a medical emergency.
If you've already been given a Crisis Line number from a health professional, call it.
If you are under the care of a mental health team and have a specific care plan that states who to contact when you need urgent care, follow this plan.
The charity Mind offers information about how to plan for a crisis.
The Samaritans operate a free to call service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, if you want to talk to someone in confidence. Call them on 116 123.
You can call NHS 111 if you or someone you know requires urgent care, but it is not life-threatening.
Alternatively if you understand something about your situation and think we might be good people to help, or feel that private care might be more suitable, you can contact us directly as a private patient. Telephone calls and e-mails will be answered during normal weekday office hours.
