Mind in Kingston is not an emergency mental health service and we are unable to respond to a mental health crisis. But there are services who can help.
If you feel that you that you can’t keep yourself safe, are thinking of taking your own life, or are at risk of harming yourself, these services can offer urgent support.
IN AN EMERGENCY
If you feel absolutely desperate, if you have harmed yourself, or you feel you are at immediate risk of harming yourself or others, ring 999 for an ambulance or go to A&E (Kingston Hospital NHS Trust, Galsworthy Road, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey, KT2 7QB). The hospital will assess your needs and keep you safe.
Who to contact if you feel mentally unsafe
Contact your GP
They are your first port of call if you are feeling worse, both physically and mentally, or if you feel you require medication or need to change your medication. Ask for an urgent/emergency appointment if necessary.

To mark Carers Rights Day 2020, today Carers UK have released new research which estimates that the care provided to date during the COVID-19 pandemic by unpaid carers is a staggering £135 billion; meaning each day during the pandemic, unpaid carers are saving the UK state £530 million in the care they provide. You can read the report in full here.
Previous research we have undertaken in recent months found that the majority (81%) of carers have been taking on more care since the start of the pandemic, and nearly two thirds (63%) are worried about how they will continue to manage over winter.
As a result, we are calling on the government to provide additional support for carers, to acknowledge the enormous contribution made by carers during this pandemic, and give back to carers by prioritising their health, wellbeing and resilience this winter.
