Mental Health Crisis & Emergency
If you or anybody you know are experiencing a crisis or an emergency (suicidal attempt or ideation, psychosis, self harm or harm to others) you need to call 000 or make your way immediately to your nearest hospital emergency department. Alternatively ACIS may assist by calling 1314 65.
Please let your psychologist know in your first, or subsequent appointments, if you are experiencing any of the above so a safety plan can be implemented outside of your counselling sessions.
