If you have serious concerns about someone’s immediate safety, phone 111 or take them to the Accident and Emergency Department (A&E) at your nearest hospital. Call your nearest hospital, your district health board’s psychiatric emergency service or mental health crisis assessment team. Remain with them and help them to stay safe until support arrives.
FOR URGENT HELP IN A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS contact the Community Mental Health Urgent Response team: Central Auckland 0800 800 717, South Auckland 09 261 3700.
