How we help

Crisis services

When a person's mental or emotional state gets worse quickly, this can be called a mental health crisis or a mental health emergency. If you, a friend or relative are in crisis or need urgent or emergency support then our services may not be appropriate for you at this time. York Mind is not a crisis service. Follow this link for details of out of hours support and guidance in a mental health crisis.

Alternatively, please see below for contact details of Crisis Services:
