BBC Ambulance: support, advice, and helplines

Throughout our season of BBC's 'Ambulance', our crews, call handlers, and dispatchers respond to jobs that some viewers may find upsetting. 

Below are some links to a number of charities and services that provide support, advice, and helplines for topics that may be discussed throughout the season.
