If you are concerned about your own or someone you know’s mental health, you should seek the advice and support of your GP as a matter of priority. If you are in need of immediate help and are unable to see a GP, you should visit your local A&E.
There are also a number of mental health organisations that provide helplines and support services. Should you wish contact these, their contact details can be found below.
blOKes is a community organisation that focuses on raising awareness of mental health. We are not able to advise people directly on their personal circumstances or provide counselling services.
