Phone us on 0800 0234 650 if you need help in a mental health crisis, 24/7

Single Point of Access

  • Our Single Point of Access is a Mental Health Crisis Line which offers emotional support and advice to people who require urgent mental health attention, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is open to children and adults of all ages, to people who haven’t previously used mental health services and to carers and family members who might be concerned about someone.
  • You can reach us by phoning 0800 0234 650 (Freephone) or emailing; we also take calls from 111.
  • If you or the person you are calling about are someone who is already receiving care from one of our mental health teams between the hours of 9am-5pm Monday to Friday we encourage you to call the mental health team that looks after you. 
  • You can also call NHS 111. If you are experiencing something that makes you feel unsafe, distressed, or worried about your mental health, you can also contact your local crisis service by calling NHS 111 and selecting the mental health option. This is an additional way to contact crisis services, and does not replace the Trust’s Mental Health Crisis Line which you can still call directly on 0800 0234 650. You can read more about NHS 111 on this page 

  • Please only attend A&E if you have an emergency about your physical health, otherwise please call our Single Point of Access 0800 0234 650 in the first instance. If you are unsure, or have a non life-threatening medical need, call 111 or visit 111 online who can also direct you to your local mental health crisis line if your concerns are related to mental health.
