If you experiencing an emergency, or feel that you are at risk of suicide or self harm, please contact NHS 111 or 999 for emergency services.
We have recently updated the way that our mental health provision works across Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. We now have one dedicated freephone number that you can contact if you are suffering with your mental health. This telephone service has been designed to help you get the right care that you need, at the right time.
If you are already under the care of our mental health services, please contact your key worker/team as soon as possible; your care plan should have details of who to contact in an emergency.
If you are not under the care of our services but need to speak to someone about your mental health, you can contact your GP or refer yourself to mental health services using the following contact details:

You can now call 111 when you need medical help fast, but it's not a 999 emergency. You will be assessed, given advice and directed straightaway to the local service that can help you best. Available 24 hours, seven days a week.
