Mind in Haringey is not a crisis service and we cannot help people who may be in serious mental health distress. Please use the following services if you or someone you know may be experiencing a mental health crisis.


If someone is at serious risk of death or injury call 999 and ask for police, fire or ambulance

Call your GP

Most surgeries have an out of hours phone number, and you should be able to book an emergency appointment.

Contact your Care Co-Ordinator

or other allocated health professional (e.g. Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN))
