Getting help

MAGES is a research project and as such we are not able to provide mental health support.

If you are concerned about your mental health or your child’s mental health, you can contact your General Practitioner (GP) for help and advice.

There are also a number of useful websites where you can get help or support:


The Samaritans

The Samaritans provide free, confidential emotional support for anyone in crisis 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. To access support, call 116 123.
