Ill-health is unwelcome at any time of year but particularly during holidays. We know it’s easy for health to drop off your to-do list when you’re really busy, so we’ve put together this short guide to help you stay well.

Mental Health crisis?

You should call 999 or go to A&E if you, or someone you know, experiences a life-threatening medical or mental health emergency. These are cases where there is immediate danger to life or physical injury. A mental health emergency should be taken as seriously as a medical emergency. If you feel like you may be close to acting on suicidal thoughts or have seriously harmed yourself, you should call 999 or go to A&E directly if you need immediate help and are worried about your safety.
