Sanctuary Crisis Support
Posted on: January 18, 2021
The Sanctuary is for people who are experiencing a mental health crisis but do not require hospital admission. We are open from 5pm – midnight, 365 days a year.
How to Access Support
Call 111, select option 2
Your needs will be assessed and could be that you are referred to the Sanctuary. You details will be forwarded to the sanctuary team and they will make contact with you as soon as possible. You will be provided with an empathic ear for you to talk freely.
You will be provided with information around coping strategies and how to access the help you need.
We can only accept people who have been referred into the service, there is no drop-in.
During lockdown we are offering mainly video and telephone support, however if this is not possible a visit to the sanctuary can be arranged.[efb_likebox fanpage_url="https://www.facebook.com/essexalliance/" fb_appid="" box_width="180" box_height=75" responsive="1" show_faces="0" show_stream="0" hide_cover="1" small_header="1" hide_cta="1" locale="en_US)"]
