New out-of-hours mental health crisis service 'The Liverpool Light' launched
The Liverpool Light service is a preventative out-of-hours mental health crisis service, open from 6pm – 12am, 7 days a week. It has been set up to provide a safe place for people who are experiencing or at risk of a mental health crisis.
The service will officially open on 9 April 2018 but referrals are already being taken. Located on London Road, this space offers a safe and secure environment for individuals to de-escalate, recuperate and begin their recovery. We provide a specialised referral service outside of GP and day service hours and offers an alternative to the A&E department at the nearby Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
The Liverpool Light is a partnership between Creative Support, a not for profit health and social care provider, and Liverpool City Council as part of the Council's pledge to prioritise mental health provision in the City.
