Help and support is available from a range of free services and helplines who can help you right now. There is no right or wrong way to talk about suicidal feelings – starting the conversation is what is important. Here is some information about services that are open every day 24h/7days and who can help you during this time:
Please note that the Counselling and Mental Health Service does not provide crisis support or out of hours support.
If a student is reporting suicidal thoughts and intent to harm themselves but they have not acted on these thoughts or you are not sure if they have or will, call NHS 111 or the Samaritans 116 123 and they will contact the student to assess current need.
NHS 111 and the Samaritans can also call an ambulance on your behalf if needed.
A duty member of staff is on call out-of-hours. Each hall displays a notice providing contact details.
Do not contact wardens if you are feeling suicidal or need urgent help, their role is to support student’s welfare but they are not able to provide emergency support. Call a helpline or NHS 111 instead or see information about Emergency Support.
You can also visit one of the Samaritans branches in person until 9pm
