Happy OK Sad

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:

Warrington Assessment Team

These are the services you're advised to contact if you are 18 or over, have symptoms of mental health problems and can't cope. If you’re 18 or over and have symptoms of mental health problems, it's best not to attend the A&E department of Warrington Hospital, unless you also need medical attention for your physical health.

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
  • contact your CAMHS Worker or Social Worker (if you have one)
  • ring the CAMHS Assessment and Response Team (CART) on 01925 579405 (see below)
  • go to the A&E department of the nearest hospital
  • if there's immediate risk of you taking your own life ring 999
