Have you heard of the Nottinghamshire Crisis Sanctuaries service? Launched in 2021, the vital service provides mental health crisis support to local communities across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
Provided in partnership between local charities Nottinghamshire Mind, Turning Point and Framework, the Crisis Sanctuaries service is available in Nottingham City, Worksop, Mansfield and Beeston. The service is open to anyone aged over 18, who feels they are in, or near, a mental health crisis and needs a safe space to talk. Full addresses, contact details and current times of opening are available on the Nottinghamshire Crisis Sanctuaries website, which is updated regularly.
Each Crisis Sanctuary has three trained Crisis Intervention Workers available at any one time, who provide recovery-focused crisis support in a trusted and consistent space for people who require out of hours mental health support. Help can also be provided via telephone or through video calling platforms for those who are unable to attend the service in person.
