    You just go to a hospital and tell them that you want to be put under a voluntary hold. Then they take your shoes, your belt (so wear pants that fit), ask you some questions and put you in a room which is really, really boring. Some people treat you nicely, others are dicks. then the next morning you talk to a psychiatrist and they then tell you how they can help.

    It's like the DMV really :)

    Nothing too creepy.

    Every A&E department will have access to a psychiatrist, but you're probably best seeing your gp on an emergency appointment on Monday unless you are imminently going to hurt yourself or someone else. Try not to over-egg the pudding cos you don't want to give the impression that you are uncontrollable and end up bloody sectioned! (Though they probably wouldn't really want to do that so close to Christmas... they like to try and empty wards at Christmas time)
