I'm feeling suicidal or need emergency help

Always call 999 if you need help straight away.

If you’re having suicidal thoughts or are experiencing a serious mental health crisis, there is support available. This page will help you look after yourself and find someone to talk to. 

What to do in a crisis 

If you’re worried you might harm yourself or others, then this is a crisis. Please either dial 999 or go directly to the Accident and Emergency (A&E) department of your local hospital to get urgent help.   

999 emergency services include ambulance, police and fire. Don’t worry if you’re not sure what kind of help you need - just explain your problem and they can work out what kind of help is best. 

The nearest A&E department to LSE is UCLH on Euston Road (view map). If you are away from LSE, you can search for your nearest UK A&E service online via the NHSYou can go to A&E yourself or call 999 to request an ambulance. If you are outside the UK, please dial the local emergency services number. 

You can also call LSE Security  at any time on their emergency line: 020 7955 6555 (internal extension 666), who can help liaise with the emergency services and make sure you get help if you're on campus.
