Mental Health Safe Havens in Surrey and North East Hampshire

Safe Havens provide out of hours help and support to people and their carers who are experiencing a mental health crisis or emotional distress.Surrey and Borders NHS Safe Haven

There are six services open in town centre locations across Surrey and North East Hampshire to residents of any district or borough within this area.

They are open evenings, weekends and bank holidays and are designed to give adults a safe alternative to A&E when in crisis (please see individual services for detailed opening times).

Each Safe Haven is staffed by a mental health practitioner from Surrey and Borders Partnership and two trained Safe Haven workers. Peer support from people with lived experience of mental health issues is also increasingly available.

The Safe Havens are provided by a partnership between our Trust and third sector mental health specialists which is funded by Surrey and N E Hants' NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups.  See links for individual details.
