Online self-referral

Just so you know

If you believe your life, or the life of another child or young person is at immediate risk, or you require immediate medical attention, please call 999 straight away or you could go to the nearest Accident & Emergency department.

If it is not life threatening, but you feel you need immediate help you could call 111 who will be able to advise you about what to do. Alternatively, you could contact your family doctor (GP), teacher or parent/carer who will be able to help you to seek support.

Support and advice are also available from Childline call 0800 1111 or Samaritans call 116 123.

Please complete this form in full. It’s important the information is correct so we can process the referral.

People aged 16 or over can also access support from adult services. If you would prefer to do so, please visit NHS Talking Therapies to complete a self referral.

If you are a parent/carer wishing to self-refer your child please contact our Here4You Line on call 0800 234 6342.
