What is a mental health crisis?

A mental health crisis is when you feel at breaking point, and you need urgent help. 

You might be:

  • Feeling extremely anxious and having panic attacks or flashbacks
  • Feeling suicidal or self harming
  • Having an episode of hypomania or mania (feeling very high) or psychosis (hearing voices or feeling very paranoid)

You might be dealing with bereavement, addiction, abuse, money issues, relationship breakdown, workplace stress, exam stress or housing problems. You might be managing a mental health diagnosis – or you might not know why you’re feeling this way now.

Planning for a mental health crisis

Nobody plans to be in a crisis, but being able to plan what you can do to help yourself if you start to feel in crisis in the future and what support is available could help. When you feel in crisis it is not easy to think straight or remember what can help.
