Mind in West Essex is not a crisis service and our phones are not staffed 24 hours a day. If you or someone you know is in crisis right now, there are places you can turn for help:
If you, a family member or friend are in crisis and need help, please dial NHS 111 and select the option for mental health crisis. You will be connected to a contact centre where trained staff will provide appropriate support and advice 24 hours a day.
If you are under the age of 18 or are the family member of someone under the age of 18 who is in crisis, please call Southend, Essex and Thurrock Children’s and Adolescent’s Mental Health Service (SET CAMHS) on 0800 953 0222
Serious or life-threatening emergencies
If you or someone you know is in mental health crisis and requires serious or life threatening emergency mental or physical care, dial 999 immediately.
