24/7 Mental health crisis line
If you live in any of the five of our London boroughs: Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth and you need mental health support in a crisis you can call our 24/7 Mental Health Crisis Line on 0800 028 8000.
The Mental Health Crisis Line offers emotional support and advice to people who are affected by urgent mental health issues, at any time of the day or night. It is open to everyone: both children and adults of all ages, and to people who haven’t previously accessed mental health services.
Please only attend A&E if you have an emergency with your physical health. The MHSL can help and direct you to the right service for your mental health.
If you are already a patient (adult or young person under the age of 18) at our Trust, between the hours of 9am-5pm Monday to Friday we encourage you to call the mental health team that looks after you. You can find their contact details here. Otherwise, please contact the 24/7 Mental Health Crisis Line.
If you are a child or young person, or a parent/carer concerned about a young person’s mental health, you can contact the SLP CAMHS Crisis Line on 0203 228 5980, Monday to Friday 5pm – 11pm, and Saturday, Sunday, and BHs 9am – 11pm.
If you are calling urgently from a partner agency and require support and direction, you are encouraged to also contact the 24/7 Mental Health Crisis Line.
If you need more general advice and support with your mental health, please see our Advice and support page.
