General Help for suicidal thoughts and other mental health issues
If you are worried about someone you know, help is available. You're not alone; talk to someone you trust. Sharing a problem is often the first step to recovery.
If you yourself are concerned that you are developing a mental health problem you should seek the advice and support of you GP as a matter of priority. If you are in distress and need immediate help and are unable to see a GP, you should visit your local A&E. If you would like to offload or talk to someone about your problems, then you may find an emotional support line useful. Some to try are:
