Having had issues in my past with Mental Health, I'd thought I'd do a quick post / thread so that people can use the numbers below if you are ever feeling like they are upset or don't know who to speak to. We are all here and my inbox is personally open to anyone who feels this way. Please see the number below if you'd prefer to talk to a professional who'll understand exactly how you feel and will have dealt with lots of other people who have similar issues.


If you are at all concerned about your health or the health of a friend or relative you can contact your doctor or you may find useful information from one of the sources below.

If you need immediate help:
In an emergency:

  • Call 999
  • Go to your local A&E department
If you're in crisis and need to speak to someone:
  • Call NHS 111 (for when you need help but are not in immediate danger)
  • Contact your GP and ask for an emergency appointment
  • Contact the Samaritans (details below)
  • Use the 'Shout' crisis text line - text SHOUT to 85258
Available 24 hours a day to provide confidential emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress, despair or suicidal thoughts.

Thank you! It is also important to have a first aid kit always with you! I decided to pay attention to that during the pandemic time. I realized that I don't have any meds in case of an emergency. That's why I made a big order at UK Meds. Fortunately, they have everything I need for affordable prices.
