    Hi @BenefitsTrainingCo

    Can you both help me with this post??

    Many thanks.

    Hi @murs

    Welcome to the community, I am so sorry to hear about the problems you are facing, and I am sorry for you loss.

    You can contact the Samaritans on 116 123 - they are there to listen without judgement and if you feel you need to speak to someone, they can really help.

    There is some information on the MIND website about self harm, and they offer this information about keeping yourself safe:

    If you don't feel you can keep yourself safe right now, seek immediate help.
    • go to any hospital A&E department (sometimes known as the emergency department)
    • call 999 and ask for an ambulance if you can't get to A&E
    • ask someone else to contact 999 for you or take you to A&E immediately
    If you need some support right now, but don't want to go to A&E, here are some other options for you to try:
    • contact the Samaritans on freephone 116 123, they're open 24 hours and are there to listen
    • contact your local crisis team
