Crisis support and advice for those with mental health difficulties, their families and carers.
Edinburgh Crisis Centre is on hand 24/7 via email, freephone or text for those experiencing a mental health crisis, and those caring for someone in crisis. A mental health crisis might be anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bereavement and thoughts of self-harming or suicide.
The service is for Edinburgh residents aged 16+ who are using or have used mental health services, or who identify themselves as having mental health difficulties. Family members and carers of those struggling can also contact the Crisis Centre.
Initial contact is by freephone, text or email. From there, a video call or same-day face-to-face appointment can be arranged.
