Drop in to one of our Crisis Cafés
Join us at one of our drop in cafes. Run by an NHFT mental health professional and a MIND peer support worker, they provide support and safety to anyone in need by offering coping mechanisms and management techniques to help reduce the risk of crisis. As well as offering support, professionals can also refer and direct you to further services if required. Crisis Cafés are available for anyone 18 years old or over who are finding themselves in a crisis or need support with their mental health.
There is no need to call and book an appointment, simply drop in to one of the Northamptonshire locations listed to receive support. If you have any questions or to view crisis cafés venues, dates and times you can access the Crisis Cafe webpage by clicking here.
Contact your GP or the GP out-of-hours service
If you are worried about yourself, a friend or relative, speak to your family doctor (GP) in the first instance. Your GP will know the services that can help you the most and will arrange a referral to our services if your needs cannot be met more effectively by primary care mental health services or other agencies.
For out of normal hours help, you can contact NHS 111. They will refer you to an out of hours GP. Simply dial 111 to access this service.
