Anchor Counselling is not an emergency or crisis service. Please contact the numbers below if you are in crisis. Or call emergency services on 999. Or go to your nearest Accident & Emergency hospital.

Emergency Care and Support


The Samaritans operate a free service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, if you want to talk to someone in confidence. Call them for free on 116 123.

A&E or call 999

A&E and 999 is not limited to just physical problems, it considers a mental health crisis, both life-threatening and non-threatening as a medical emergency.

You can call 999 for yourself or for someone you know who may be in life-threatening medical and mental health situations. The operator will provide initial support while an emergency support is on their way to meet you.

If you are worried about your safety, go to your closest A&E who have special areas with a liaison psychiatry team (or psychological medicine service) to keep you safe and treat you if you have seriously harmed yourself.

MIND – Planning for an Emergency / Crisis

Mind is a mental health charity that offers information and advice to people with mental health problems. Although they are not an emergency service they have provided a planning for emergency page.
