Are you thinking of suicide and/or self-harm?

In an emergency, where you are at a risk of self-harm - call 999, if you are in the UK (or your local emergency health services number, for your country)

Help with suicidal thoughts

We at GOGL are very concerned to hear that you are experiencing suicidal thoughts or thoughts of self-harm. It’s very important that you get the help you need as soon as possible. If you're feeling that you want to die, it's important to tell someone straightaway. 


Talk to someone you trust. Let family or friends know what's going on for you. They may be able to offer support and help keep you safe.


The UK's NHS recommends that you should start to talk to your GP. We therefore strongly recommend that you get in touch with your GP practice immediately. 

Help and support however is available right now if you need it, for most countries. You do not have to struggle with distressing feelings alone. 


Below are free helplines, in the UK,  where you can speak to someone when you're feeling alone and desperate. We suggest you search the internet for similar, for your own country - if you are not in the UK

 

Helplines


These free helplines are there to help when you're feeling down or desperate.


Unless it says otherwise, they're open 24 hours a day, every day.

Samaritans – for everyone :  Call 116 123 – you will be able to speak to someone immediately

Call 999 now if you have already seriously harmed yourself – for example, by taking a drug overdose – ask for an ambulance or go straight to your nearest A&E.

Talk to someone you trust
Let family or friends know what's going on for you. They may be able to offer support and help keep you safe.

There's no right or wrong way to talk about suicidal feelings – starting the conversation is what's important.

Who else you can talk to
If you find it difficult to talk to someone you know, you could:

  • call a GP – ask for an emergency appointment

  • call 111 out of hours – they will help you find the support and help you need

  • contact your mental health crisis team – if you have one
