If you are already receiving treatment and support for your mental health from a community mental health team, the first point of contact should be with the team and your care coordinator / named worker. If you have previously had similar symptoms then you might find it useful to think about what helped you cope before. Your care plan and / or a crisis and safety plan will identify what you (and others) can do to help along with details of who to contact in an emergency and outside of the teams operational hours. It’s best to seek help from professionals that know you well as they can help support you better.
