Do you need urgent help, when Student Services is closed?
Are you worried about yourself, a friend or a relative?
You do not need to be alone; there are places that can help.
Your first port of call should be your GP who will talk to you about what will be most helpful and can refer you to the appropriate source of support.
However, if it is an emergency call the emergency services (dial 999 and ask for the police or ambulance service) or visit Accident and Emergency or a Police Station.
If it is a non-emergency, but you require police presence, call 101
