If you need help right now

If you, or someone you know, can’t cope it’s important to ask for support. It’s especially important if you feel desperate, or are having thoughts of suicide.


If you are 18 or over, can’t cope, or are feeling suicidal then you can:

  • talk to your doctor
  • if your doctor's surgery is closed ring NHS 111
  • contact your Care Coordinator (if you have one) 
  • ring the Warrington Assessment Team on 01925 666647 (see drop down heading below)

The Assessment Team, rather than A&E, is recommended for adults in crisis, unless they also need urgent medical attention for their physical health.

  • if there's immediate risk of you taking your own life then go to A&E, or ring 999

If you are under 18, can’t cope, or are feeling suicidal then you can:

  • talk to your doctor
  • if your doctor's surgery is closed ring NHS 111

  • between 9.00am and 9.00pm ring the CAMHS Assessment and Response Team (CART) on 01925 579405 (see drop down heading below)
