NEW 24-HOUR CRISIS MENTAL HEALTH PHONE LINE
Dialling 111 and selecting the option for mental health crisis (option 2) will connect callers to staff at Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (EPUT) who will provide immediate support and advice.
The service is for people aged 18 and over. Anyone under the age of 18 or family members of anyone under the age of 18 in crisis, should call North East London NHS Foundation Trust’s Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Service on 0300 555 1201.
999 should still be used for anyone in need of treatment for serious or life-threatening physical health issues alongside a mental health crisis.
