Get more help
If you’ve been having suicidal feelings or have been in crisis you can also speak to your GP. They can talk about the thoughts you’re having and make sure you get the help and support you need. You can get on going support in North Yorkshire to talk through your difficult feelings – find out more about what’s in North Yorkshire for me.
You can text the North Yorkshire texting service BUZZ US to discuss your concerns on 07520 631168. You will receive confidential advice, support and signposting from a wellbeing worker within one working day via text. BUZZ US is not a crisis service. If you are in crisis, you should call one of the CAMHS Crisis Service numbers above.
You may feel totally alone and like there’s no hope. No matter how bad things get and how strong those feelings might be, with the right support you’ll be able to overcome these overwhelming feelings.
