South West London and St. George’s Mental Health NHS Trust plans to develop two Mental Health Crisis Recovery Cafés within the boroughs that they operate (Merton, Sutton, Wandsworth, Kingston and Richmond) and is currently tendering for a provider(s) of these cafés.
The successful provider(s) will work closely with the Trust and local communities to develop a non-stigmatising, accessible service that can provide peer-led support to people in mental health crisis in the evenings and at weekends. The new cafés will provide an alternative to A&E or hospital admission and will support the recovery and treatment of service users in a mental health crisis.
The service will have directs link to the Trust’s Home Treatment Teams and will offer peer-led support to people who feel they are in crisis, helping them to develop self-management strategies and to build resilience. The service will also signpost people to other local resources and mental health services.
