I'm a professional

If you feel the person you're supporting is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please call 999 now.

The crisis team can help them if they feel like their mental health is at breaking point. They might have already been diagnosed with a mental health problem or this might be the first time they have had a mental health problem. Each person's experience of a mental health crisis is individual to them.
