If you currently receive a service from the Trust, such as a psychiatrist or local community mental health team, then make contact with them as soon as you can. It may be helpful to refer to your care plan, which should have details of who to contact in an emergency. If you do not receive any of our services, the best thing to do is to get in touch with your own GP (family doctor). They may be able to help you themselves or put you in contact with more specialist mental health services.
