About Mental Health

On this page you will find:

If you need urgent help, call the local Mental Health Central Access Point (CAP) on 0808 800 3302 (open 24/7, 365 days), visit a Neighbourhood Mental Health Café near you, or call 111.

If you need immediate help because you can't keep yourself safe or have already harmed yourself, seek emergency help by calling 999.

Everyone has mental health, just like we all have physical health, and it can fluctuate day to day. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological and social wellbeing and it affects how we think, feel and act. Our mental health is as important as all other parts of our overall health.

It's important to remember that it is possible, and indeed likely, for someone to recover from experiencing a period of poor mental health or mental illness.
