If a person’s mental or emotional state quickly worsens, this can be treated as a mental health emergency or mental health crisis. In this situation, it’s important to get help as soon as possible. Contact NHS Direct (or NHS 111 if available in your area) to find out where help is available. If you feel the person is in immediate danger then call 999.
