About the Service/Department
Working within Hestia’s crisis alternative operational team, the Café will provide a safe, welcoming and non-clinical environment to support people who are experiencing psychological distress. The primary aim is to provide an alternative community setting for people in a mental health crisis, who may otherwise attend A&E or access other urgent and emergency services.
