Help in a crisis
The RCC is a provider of suicide and self harm awareness training only. It does not provide treatment or care, or direct help to those who may be in distress or crisis. If you have found your way to this website and are in distress or crisis, possibly even thinking of taking your own life, please seek help as soon as possible.
You can get help from your own doctor, via the NHS 111 service, or from the nearest hospital accident and emergency (A&E) department. There are also a number of other sources of support, some of which are listed below:
