North East Essex Crisis Café
The North East Essex Crisis Café provides a safe, welcoming space where people experiencing emotional distress or mental health crisis can receive support outside of normal working hours and is a community-based alternative to crisis mental health services.
The North East Essex Crisis Café is open 7 days a week, excluding bank holidays from 5pm to 10pm and you can self-refer by contacting us on 0300 330 9492.
Referral can also be made by a professional such as a GP, emergency services or NHS 111 (option 2) by telephone or email.
The North East Essex Crisis Café provides wellbeing support every evening to those in emotional distress or experiencing a mental health crisis.
Due to on-going public health guidance the North East Essex Crisis Café is currently primarily a telephone support service. Attendance can be facilitated but is limited to one person at a time.
If you are in need of immediate support and do not live in Mid or North East Essex please see the Out of Hours/Crisis Support pages on our website for more information.
