In an Emergency

If you are concerned about someone’s mental health and believe that they are at immediate risk of harming themselves or others then please contact 999. Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust provides a 24/7 service to all mental health patients across Oxfordshire, and all of our AMHTs provide emergency assessment and treatment functions.

If you are known to our services:

If you are experiencing a mental health crisis and are known to our services then you should have a crisis plan which outlines what you should do, and who you should contact. This might be your AMHT, GP or other voluntary organisation. If you do not have a crisis plan then please contact your AMHT or GP.

If you are not known to our services:

If you are not known to one of our services then please contact your GP (if this is out of hours, the main surgery number will have an answerphone message on which will detail how to contact the Out-of-Hours GP Service). They will be able to refer you to our services if they believe that you need specialist mental health intervention and support.
