Who we are
The Men's Crisis House supports men experiencing mental health problems where hospital admission might be the only other alternative available. The service provides ten bedrooms in a large house with 24 hour support. Communal healthy meals are provided in a shared kitchen, while residents are also supported to prepare their own meals and encouraged to take part in the day-to-day running and decision making of the house. Men can stay in the house for up to four weeks and will, at the end of their stay, then have to move from the house into appropriate accommodation. The Crisis House is managed by St Mungo's.
"Just to say thank you very much for all your help. I don't know where I would be if I hadn't been lucky enough to find help with you."
