Help for a Mental Health Crisis in the UK phone numbers/websites etc where help is available 24/7
Posted Sun Sep 22, 2013 02:50 PM
I would be delighted if someone could compile a list similar for those in the USA and Canada.
If you are feeling low, vulnerable, scared, lonely, suicidal, there are people that can help and offer a friendly non judgmental ear, they can also offer immediate help and advice.
all of these people offer telephone or email as you may not feel able to speak to someone, it doesn't matter thought if you can't speak, they will stay on the phone with you even if you choose to be silent and just want to know that someone is there.

The doctors normally have the leaflets you can look through if you ask.
Also on the Nhs website, you can take a wellbeing self assessment and there are some useful links within.
and also a drop link on the page where you can find local services too.
