MENTAL HEALTH HELPLINES, WEB SUPPORT & LINKS

Sometimes you may need additional support or practical advice about your mental health. Here is a list of services that may be helpful. I do not suggest these as a replacement to therapy, rather an addition to it. There are also some links you can access now if need to speak to someone urgently.

These links are up to date at the time of publishing. They are external links and I am not responsible for information or advice given from these organisations. If you are in crisis, danger or with suicidal thoughts call 999
