Suicide

Our services at the Suicide Crisis Centre are available to anyone living in Gloucestershire who is feeling suicidal.
You can contact us on 07975 974455.

We are based in a road off the main High Street in Cheltenham.

We also have a new 24-hour Centre in another part of Cheltenham which high-risk clients can visit day or night.

We provide face to face support. Our crisis services offer intensive support if you are at high risk of suicide, and we can continue to support you over the longer term on a less intensive basis.

A small team will work with you so that you can build up trust with them, and have continuity of care. We have a very well trained team and we have chosen team members who are caring, kind and empathic.

Our number for your first contact with us is 07975 974455 and this phone operates between 9am and 10pm every day. We can extend the hours beyond these times for you when you are under our care, particularly if you are at high risk of suicide.

If you live outside Gloucestershire, please see sources of help below. We are very sorry that we only have Suicide Crisis Centres in Gloucestershire at present.

We don’t reveal the location of our Centres on the website. This helps to ensure that they remain safe, confidential places.

Phone  111 (the new NHS number)  24 hours a day.

If you, or someone you know, is at immediate risk of suicide, you can call 999.
