A mental health crisis (sometimes also called a mental health emergency) is when a person’s mental or emotional state worsens quickly. It often means that you no longer feel able to cope or be in control of your situation.
A mental health crisis or emergency can be a frightening experience, you may feel scared, overwhelmed or alone but the important thing to remember is that you are not alone and there is support available to help you feel better.
Whether you experience a sudden deterioration of an existing mental health problem or are experiencing problems for the first time, the most important thing is to reach out for help.
We are here to provide help and support, please get in touch if you need urgent help.Get in touch
