Many people throughout their lives will have periods where they feel stress. In the majority of cases this is perfectly normal given the pressures that many of us have to face in everyday life. There will be times however, when stress becomes unbearable and some people who suffer from existing mental health issues such as severe depression or psychosis they may require to access urgent help.

The appropriate and rapid access to emergency mental health services is by contacting your GP who may put you in touch with your local Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) who if appropriate can see you the same day.

Crisis Intervention Teams work closely with local teams to ensure that people who are at significant risk have access to a Mental Health Practitioner 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Crisis Teams are specifically there to support people who are experiencing a mental health crisis and who require rapid intervention and can be accessed via your GP or through NHS 24 out of working hours.
