The Camden Crisis Sanctuary 


All staff take and log negative lateral flow tests every week and engage in regular handwashing and environmental cleaning regimes. All the measures we implement are to ensure that we can remain operating a safe, face to face service to support people with their mental health.

The Camden Crisis Sanctuary is a safe place for people in mental health crisis and distress to attend for support. We are here to help you when you are unable to cope on your own by:

  • Supporting you in reducing, managing and coping with your immediate distress, anxiety and stress.
  • Providing you with a short-term support network in your time of need.
  • Speaking to someone who will listen to you and provide you with information and assistance to manage your mental health.
  • Work with you to create your own individual plan to support your mental health needs during your stay at the Crisis Sanctuary and provide you with tools and information for when you leave.
