We all need some support from time to time to help to make us feel a little more in control of things. If you are concerned about your mental health, or the mental health of your child, your GP is always the best place to seek advice in the first instance. If you feel someone is at immediate risk of seriously harming themselves or others due to a mental health episode, call 999 immediately.
