As of the 1st January 2016 Turning Point will be providing 24 hour crisis support for people in Nottingham. Haven House is a short stay recovery focused crisis service providing a safe, homely and welcoming space for people in Nottingham who are feeling distressed or experiencing a crisis.

The team provide support for up to six adults at any one time. The service is open to individuals over 18 and provides a range of support in a residential setting for up to seven days.

The service is a safe haven for those in crisis who would benefit from emotional and practical support and may otherwise require admission to hospital. Individuals will have the chance to focus on their wellbeing, and receive help to develop their own wellness plan to support their on-going recovery.

Referrals to the service are made by the City and County South Enhanced Crisis Resolution Home Treatment team (ECRHT).

Gaye Flounders, Senior Operations Manager at Turning Point says: ‘We’re really pleased to be delivering this kind of support in Nottingham and working with partners to ensure people in crisis get the right support at the right time. Many people reach a crisis point in their lives when they need additional support to cope. Haven House allows people to access the help they need without having to go into hospital.

‘Haven House will provide a safe space in a welcoming environment for people to access advice, information, practical and emotional support in regards to crisis resolution and the skills to build coping strategies bespoke to them. Our team of specialists will work with individuals and community services to enable people to leave the service more able to manage their mental health and wellbeing.’
