Our Safe Haven is a drop in service for people experiencing a mental health crisis. Our team of professionals and volunteers with experience of mental health problems provide advice, support and information.
Our service aims to prevent people needing to visit A&E for help in a mental health crisis.
Our Safe Haven is open from 5pm-10pm Monday to Friday,
and 10am-10pm on weekends and bank holidays.
