Feeling Suicidal

Crisis Team

If you are feeling suicidal, contact your GP who will refer you to the Crisis Team.

The Crisis team can give you the support and advice you need to help you get your life on track.

Ilfracombe Link Centre

The Ilfracombe Link Centre is for people with, and recovering from, all kinds of mental health problems and difficulties. You can be referred or you can approach the Link Centre directly yourself to access its services. It is a safe relaxed place to be with people and get support.
There is tea and coffee always available and on Tuesday evenings a meal is planned and prepared by the people who are there on the day with support from the staff where needed.
The centre can point you in the right direction and give you support on a range of areas, like finding work, going to evening classes, debt advice, benefit claims or accommodation as well as a number of free courses.
