When might you need to visit your local Crisis Support Drop-in service?

The services are designed to offer support and a safe space to anyone over 18 experiencing (or nearing) a mental health crisis:
For example, you might:

  • be feeling emotionally distressed
  • be experiencing or nearing crisis point with your mental health
  • feeling low and potentially experiencing suicidal thoughts
  • be feeling anxious, worried or panicky
  • have experienced a life event that has impacted your usual ability to cope
  • be having a ‘dip’ in your mental health, that you are usually able to manage
  • want a calm space to go to to keep yourself safe and distract from thoughts of self harm

We also recognise that you might also want to come and visit the service and staff so that you know who and where we are in case you experience a crisis in the near future.
