We all struggle with our mental health at times and it is nothing to be ashamed of. For some people it can seem hard to keep themselves safe when they are struggling.
At Enhancing Futures we don’t offer an emergency service or have the facility to manage a person in a mental health crisis.
If you have urgent concerns about someone, you may need to contact their GP, Urgent Care Centre or Mental Health Crisis Service (if they are already open to an NHS Mental Health Team).
If you are concerned about someone’s immediate safety, it should be classed as an emergency and you should contact the Emergency Services for support by dialling 999 or 112 from a mobile phone.
If you feel you are unable to speak on the phone but would like to seek some crisis support, there are text support services available such as SHOUT on 85258 which can be used by anyone in the UK, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week (24/7).
