Very Important Numbers

If you feel you can’t talk to anyone in your immediate support circle about some of the issues you are going through – that’s okay!

There are many external and anonymous ways of getting support. Just don’t leave it for too long before seeking the mental health tools you need.

Below is a list of help sources for immediate help.

If you are in an emergency, or at immediate risk of harm to yourself or others, please contact emergency services on:

000 (or 112 from a mobile phone)
