Need Urgent Help?
If your child’s mental or emotional state quickly gets worse and you feel like you can't cope with how they're feeling, this can be called a ‘mental health crisis’. In this situation, it is important to get help quickly.

You should still call 999 or go to A&E if you have an immediate, life-threatening emergency requiring mental or physical health assistance.
