Mental Health Support
If you are worried about your mental health or that of someone you know, it will help to talk to someone about it. Similarly, if you support or help someone who is struggling with their mental health, then the same can apply to you.
Help in an emergency
If you feel you or someone else is in immediate danger, you should call 999.
If no one is at immediate risk, but you need urgent assistance or advice you can call the West London Mental Health Trust's Single Point of Access (SPA) Helpline. The SPA may arrange a referral to an appropriate mental health service or signpost you to support organisations that you can approach directly. You can contact the SPA Helpline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 0800 328 4444.
Alternatively, your GP (family doctor) will be able to help you find the right advice and support for your situation.
Advice and support
If your situation is not urgent, but you have concerns about how low levels of mental health are affecting your daily life, you can talk the council's Adult Locality Mental Health Team. Face-to-face drop-in sessions are currently suspended, but the Team is still available to offer support to anyone with social care needs suffering with and experiencing mental health difficulties by telephone. .
Telephone: 020 8583 3003 (Mon to Fri, between 9am & 5pm)
