Where to go for help
Access services and support if you — or someone you care about — are dealing with a mental health concern.
In an emergency
If there is a immediate risk of harm to yourself or others, either:
- ring the police — 111
- go to the Accident and Emergency Department (A&E) at your nearest hospital, or
- contact your local district health board’s mental health crisis assessment team.

If you're concerned about someone else's safety, remain with them and help them to stay safe until support arrives.
If it's not urgent
If you want to talk
You may want to talk about your current situation with someone.
Support organisations you can talk to
If you want to access support and services
The first port of call is to see a local doctor or family doctor.
You might be able to access your local mental health services directly, but some require a referral from your doctor first. You can call Healthline on 0800 611 116 for advice.
Once you're accessing mental health services we may be able to help fund the cost of treatment.
