Mental Health URGENCY  

A mental health urgency is an acute situation that needs immediate professional assistance, but does not pose an immediate health threat.  Urgent care and support services are typically needed in situations such as these:

  • I am having thoughts of suicide and/or I am not sure I can keep myself safe.
  • I recently intentionally physically self-injured enough to require medical attention.
  • I am having thoughts of harming someone else and may act on them.
  • I am hearing voices or seeing things that no one else sees or hears.
  • I have recently gone two or more days without any sleep and do not feel tired
  • I have recently been physically or sexually assaulted or threatened with bodily harm.
  • I believe my life is in danger.
  • Someone I know (e.g., a friend, family member) is in a life-threatening situation.  

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 999
or go to the local emergency room.
