Who we are
Bristol Sanctuary is a place to come when you are in serious emotional distress. We aim to provide a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment where you can take stock and find some balance.
While at The Sanctuary, you can relax and choose what you want to do. This may be to find a quiet space, chat to others or talk one-to-one with a member of the team here. We also have a range of games and arts and crafts materials to use. Staff will be led by you with a focus on helping you to stay safe and make a short term plan of what to do next.
We can refer you to other Bristol Mental Health services, signpost you to other providers, including to telephone helplines and support you to recognise your own strengths or strategies for crisis prevention and management.
We aim to support 10-12 people during each evening we are open. You will be offered a taxi home from The Sanctuary, if needed. The Bristol Sanctuary is managed by charity St Mungo's.
"For the first time in a long time I will go to bed happy tonight."
