Safespace – help for those in mental distress

Safespace is an out-of-hours weekend support service for adults in Calderdale. It will provide a place of safety for people experiencing mental distress or who are approaching crisis.

Safespace is a 12-month pilot project funded by NHS England, part of Healthy Minds, a local charity supporting people in Calderdale to have better mental health. They will provide individual support with a view to reducing factors that may otherwise escalate risks to health and wellbeing.

  1. Face-to-face appointment – you’ll be given a time to arrive and a worker will be ready to see you
  2. Group support in a friendly, safe & supportive environment
  3. Telephone support – if you can’t come to the service, a worker will call you back
