If you have taken an overdose or feel you are at risk of serious harm, please dial 999 and ask for an ambulance. Don't delay as minutes can matter. Call now!
We aim to offer appointments within 2 working days, where possible, but are unable to provide 24-hour emergency cover.
If you are in need of immediate help and support, the options available to you include:
The Crisis Team
You can simply turn up at A&E reception and ask to see someone from the crisis team. You may have to wait a while, but you will be seen. This service is available 24-hours a day, every day of the year.
The Samaritans operate a 24-hour 7-day a week service on 116 123. Calls to this number are free and do not appear on landline or mobile itemised bills. They also offer a drop-in service in some areas. The Liverpool service is at 25 Clarence Street, L3 5TN and can be reached on 0151 708 8888.
The Calm Zone also offer help and advice, but do not provide a 24-hour helpline.
You may also contact your GP or other local services.
