SOS - Emergency Contacts for When Nobody Else is Posting on Bright Eye

Post by Jjjj of Old » 14 Jul 2017 10:40

With members coming and going at different times, immediate replies to messages posted on the SOS thread can't, unfortunately, always be guaranteed. Here are a few EMERGENCY CONTACT NUMBERS & LINKS just in case there's no-one logged in at the time you post.

This thread is locked so that this post and the list below remain immediately visible. However, if anyone notices that any of the information below has become out-of-date, or if you have other numbers/links you feel should be added, please do let the moderators know, either by sending us a private message (PM), or by posting on the Ideas / Improvements / Requests for the Forum thread. We will attempt to update or add any information as quickly as possible. Many thanks.

Each day was a day I’d worked hard to progress. If I had a bad day [and] I was feeling slightly depressed, I'd say to myself, “Well, I’ve no right to let the ‘me’ down who’s got me this far. So, snap out of it! Go and read a book."

A quick bump for anyone who may need the numbers above during the festive season ;)?

Plus, an NHS list of mental health helplines.
