Mental Health Services

1.  Single Point of Access for Mental Health Crisis Services:  0300 0200317.  This is a centralised telephone number making it easier for those in mental distress to get urgent help.  This replaces individual contact numbers for crisis services in County Durham and Darlington, Teesside and North Yorkshire and York, including those for children and young people and older aged adults.  Those with learning disabilities and/or autism can also access emergency mental health support using this number. The phone-line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, offering callers a series of options which will signpost them to the appropriate local service.

2.  Zero Suicide Alliance.  The Zero Suicide Alliance on-line training is universally accessible, aimed at communities and the general workforce but relevant to those working in Primary Care.

3.  PAPYRUS.  PAPYRUS is the prevention of young suicide and is available at the link:
