Find help in a mental health crisis

Apologies to non-UK based Anxiety United members. Currently all the contact numbers listed are if you are calling from the UK. Also the hours a service is available are quoted in UK time.

To be honest, we”re not sure about cost of calls at the moment, or if they can phone you back if you on a mobile. Maybe any members who have used these services could provide feedback?
