Get Help Now

If there is an immediate danger to life, please dial 999 or go to your nearest Accident and Emergency Department.

If you or someone you know needs help in a mental health crisis, call the crisis teams.

Call 0800 169 0398

They are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When you call, please choose one of the following options depending on your location:

  • Option 1 for Stroud and Cotswolds
  • Option 2 for Gloucester and Forest
  • Option 3 for Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and North Cotswolds

A mental health worker will talk to you about your situation and how you are feeling and will provide initial telephone advice, support and triage. This could lead on to further telephone support or onward referral/signposting to mental health services or another organisation, such as voluntary services. You may also be referred to the Crisis and Home Treatment Team.

 Please note: telephone calls may be recorded. If you do not want that to happen, please tell the person who answers your call and they will phone you back on a ‘non-recordable’ telephone.

Occasionally, callers may be asked to leave their name and number on an answerphone. In these circumstances, staff will return the call within one hour.

If you are hearing impaired, please TEXT:
