Crisis Support & Helpful Contacts


Immediate / Crisis Support

If you are in crisis and require immediate help, or are in a life-threatening situation, please call 999 or get yourself to the A&E department at Tameside General Hospital.

Mental Health


You can contact Samaritans 24 hours a day for free on 116 123 to speak with someone confidentially.

If things are getting to you, you can talk to The Samaritans any time you like, in your own way and off the record - about whatever's getting to you.

You can also email them at jo@samaritans.org.
