Emergency support

Birkbeck Counselling Service is not a crisis service. If you need help during a crisis, please contact the Emergency Services, your GP, or visit your nearest hospital's Accident and Emergency department. Please refer to the details below for more information on emergency contacts. 

Crisis support

  • University College London Hospital is the nearest Accident and Emergency department to Birkbeck College. If you require help urgently, call 999. 
  • The Samaritans can be called on 116 123. Their service is free and open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • If you are already receiving mental health support from the Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust, you can contact their Crisis Care Team 24 hours a day on 0800 917 3333.

Further help
