Mental health

Shropdoc DOES NOT provide mental health services unless it is a mental health crisis or emergency. 

A mental health crisis often means that the person no longer feel able to cope or be in control of their situation and may be feeling emotional distress or anxiety, or thinking about suicide or self-harm, or experience hallucinations and hearing voices.

You can call NHS 111 if you or someone you know requires urgent care, but it is not life-threatening. For example: 

  • if you have an existing mental health problem and your symptoms get worse
  • if you experience a mental health problem for the first time
  • if someone has self-harmed but it does not appear to be life-threatening, or is talking about wanting to self-harm
  • if a person shows signs of onset dementia
  • if a person is experiencing domestic violence or physical, sexual or emotional abuse
