Local services and training
- If someone is in a mental health crisis, 111 offers a mental health liaison service 24/7.
- Shout provides a free support line for young people in crisis. More information is available here: Give Us A Shout
- No Limits provides support over the phone, email and Web Chat, more information can be found here: No Limits
- GP practices are providing remote consultations via telephone or e-consult (a link for e-consult will be on each practice website) and can also arrange face to face consultations in a safe way if needed.
To better understand the ‘signs’ that someone might show when thinking about suicide, as well as basic top tips about how to open conversations about suicide, we are recommending a free online training course. This has been created by the Zero Suicide Alliance and takes about 20 minutes to complete.
