Do you need help now?

If your mental or emotional state quickly gets worse or deteriorates, this can be called a 'mental health crisis'. In this situation, it is important to get help quickly.

Please call the mental health helpline on 0800 001 4331 and our dedicated local staff will support you to access the help you need. The phone line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

If you are seeking emotional wellbeing and mental health support for children and young people, please call the Lincolnshire Here4You line on 0800 234 6342 (open 24/7).

Alternatively, the Shout text messaging service is also available if you are unable to call. Text 'BLUE' to 85258 to start a conversation, via text, with a trained volunteer, who will provide free and confidential support. 

If you need urgent help call 111. For an emergency call 999 or go to A&E. 

Local mental health support

For out of hours support, a local crisis team can help support you. Contact details should be in your care plan. If you don't have these, call our Single Point of Access Team on 0303 123 4000 or email [email protected].

If you have not used our services before, call our Mental Health Helpline above for advice and support. Or, if you are 16 or over and feeling stressed, anxious, low in mood or depressed, you can self-refer to Lincolnshire Talking Therapies - our talking therapies service.

During office hours, contact your general practitioner (GP). They will be able to refer you to the most appropriate mental health service in your area.
