Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, 9am-7pm on Wednesdays and 10am-12pm on Saturdays.

Crisis support

If you are feeling suicidal or in crisis, the best thing is to talk. Speak to somebody you trust or contact a service which can offer you support. If you think that somebody that you know might be suicidal – ask them.

Sussex Mental Healthline: 0300 5000 101. Lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, and 24 hours at weekends and bank holidays.

The Samaritans: 116 123 offer 24-hour confidential emotional support for anyone in a crisis. This number is free from both landlines and mobiles. Or click here for the Samaritans website.

You can contact your GP or call the NHS 111 number to access specialist mental health telephone or face-to-face support. If you are known to mental health services and need urgent mental health support, you can contact your care co-ordinator.

Accident & Emergency departments are a place you can go if you are in crisis.

The National Mind Booklets How to Cope with Suicidal Feelings and Suicide – Supporting Someone Else both have lots of helpful information.
