Crisis Cafés Survey – Still Open

Crisis Cafés are one of three ‘Mental Health Crisis Alternatives’ which aim to ensure that people in Derby city and across Derbyshire can access a range of services to receive support and prevent crisis out of hours.

A 24 Hour Helpline, run by P3 in partnership with NHS Clinicians and a Safe Haven, run by The Richmond Fellowship, are already up and running. A Crisis Café provides a warm and welcoming space in the evenings and at weekends for anyone who feels they are approaching a mental health crisis. It will be staffed by trained mental health workers and have access to NHS Clinicians. 

Crisis Alternative Development Workers, Naomi and Claire, have been learning from other regions that already have Crisis Cafés and are talking to organisations that may want to offer a Crisis Café in Derbyshire. They are keen to have conversations with anyone that has a view on what a good Crisis Café would look like and to talk with organisations that might want to provide the service, as a single provider or as part of an alliance.

A short survey has been created to gather the sector’s views on what support would be needed from statutory services to ensure that Crisis Cafés are safe and accessible for all. You can complete the survey in 5 minutes by following this link. The survey will close at 5pm on Friday 8th July.
