If you’re feeling overloaded, no matter what your background or situation, we’re here to offer you support. Don’t feel like you have to struggle alone – talking can help.
We have trained staff available 24/7 who can listen to you and provide advice & support. Calls are free and confidential.
The team can offer advice around services that can help you understand how you are feeling. They can decide whether you need specialist mental health support – if so, you can expect to speak to Mental Health Advisors and/or trained Mental Health Clinicians who will be able to listen to your concerns and help make appropriate plans with you to support you.
If you are already being supported by Mental Health Services in Herefordshire or Worcestershire, you should try and speak to your usual team before contacting the urgent helpline, unless it’s outside of core hours, a weekend or bank holiday.
No person should feel ashamed or sit alone with their thoughts of suicide. Everyone in this situation should know that suicide is not their only option.
This is the vision for the Herefordshire & Worcestershire’s Suicide Prevention Programme.
Our suicide prevention programme is about early intervention and prevention in everyday settings.
We want to foster communities that create and promote wellbeing opportunities for those struggling with their emotional health to get help before a crisis point is reached.
This is particularly important for groups of our population such as middle-aged men who may be less likely to access formal healthcare support around mental health.
