Pause and BEAM are well-being drop-in services, no need for appointments. They can arrange for you see a practitioner if you want to talk to someone one-to-one. We also run group sessions and other specialist services, some of which may require a referral.

Need urgent support?
A mental health crisis is an emergency that has a direct and immediate threat to your physical or emotional well-being. In these situations, it's important to get help quickly.
Try to stay calm and ask someone for help if you need it. It could help to tell someone you trust, maybe a family member or a friend. They can be with you and help you decide what to do. They can also contact services on your behalf.
If there is any immediate risk to life, contact the emergency services by calling 999.
