About the Recovery Cafés

The cafes offer a FREE safe, inclusive and welcoming spaces for people who are struggling to cope with their mental health during the evening and weekends when other services maybe closed.

The cafes will support people to reduce their immediate crisis and anxiety, and to create a safety plan, drawing on strengths, resilience and coping mechanisms to reduce the need to use crisis services in the future.
