If you, or someone you
know, need someone to talk to:
Contact Samaritans - call someone on
UK or Ireland. Free from any phone.
Contact your local doctor - search under 'General Practitioners' in the Golden Pages or search here
Go to, or contact, the Accident and Emergency Department of your nearest general hospital. Don't hesitate - you wouldn't if it was your leg that was broken.
These are great links below. There's a lot of help out there, a road well travelled by others before you who want to pay it back and help.
