Crisis Information

Who to contact if you need urgent help

Counselling isn't a crisis service, and as such Cornerstone is not able to offer crisis support to members of the public who are in urgent need of support and/or intervention.

If you find yourself in an extremely negative space and would like to communicate that to someone, then we would invite you to contact one of the many crisis agencies available in Somerset.

Clicking on this link will direct you to the Somerset Partnership NHS website, and the appropriate information. (Website visitors in Devon can find information by clicking here.)

The Samaritans are also on hand and available to respond to a call. You can phone them on 116 123 (this is a free call on any UK network).

If you, or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, then reach out to Somerset Survivors who can offer assistance.
