Mental Health Emergencies

If you or a loved one are experiencing a mental health crisis, you can call a local NHS mental health helpline for 24-hour advice and support.

You can call for yourself, your child, your parent or someone you care for. If someone's life is at risk or they cannot be kept safe, call 999 or go to A&E.

Humber Family Connections

Humber Family Connections is a 12 week group programme for
the ‘supporters’ of individuals who present with difficulties that might be diagnosable as ‘borderline’ or ‘emotionally unstable’ personality disorder. This might be that person’s parent, sibling, partner, friend, son, daughter etc.

The programme is available to anyone registered with a GP in Hull or East Riding CCG areas. The supporter needs to be 18+ years old, but the age of the person they are supporting can be anything.

The supporter can attend the programme irrespective of whether
the supportee is in mental health services or not. The supportee does not attend Family Connections- it is to support the supporters in their own wellbeing and in learning skills themselves. The supportee won’t be informed of the supporter’s attendances, or vice versa.

You can self-refer by completing the form on the website

Useful information about dementia

If you are worried about your memory or someone else’s memory the first thing to do is make an appointment with your GP. There are many reasons why someone may be showing signs similar to dementia. Dementia is not just about losing your memory. The word 'dementia' describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss but can also affect the way you think, speak, perceive things, feel and behave.

Dementia is not a natural part of ageing. It doesn’t just affect older people. Over 42,000 people under 65 in the UK have dementia.

Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain. There are many different types of dementia and everyone’s dementia is different. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia. The specific symptoms that someone with dementia experiences will depend on the parts of the brain that are damaged and the disease that is causing the dementia.

People can still live well with dementia. Although there is no cure for dementia, scientists and researchers are working hard to find one. People with dementia can continue to lead an active, purposeful life and carry on doing the things that matter to them most.
