Getting Help and Support
If you are distressed or experiencing feelings of despair - get help now.
- Is there someone you can call - family or a friend?
- Is there a neighbour who can help?
- Is there a member of staff you can talk to – perhaps your Guidance Tutor, a member of our Wellbeing Team, the Student Counsellor, a Student Advisor or a member of the Safeguarding Team?
If you or anyone else is in immediate danger or harm then please call the Police or Ambulance Service on 999.
Do you need Urgent Medical or Mental Health help?
If you do then it is crucial that you contact the right person and that is most likely to be your GP. They will know where to get you the specialist help you need.
If your GP surgery is closed their answerphone will direct you to the right place or you can call NHS 24 by dialling 111
Use the NHS 24 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it is not a life threatening situation.
