We are delighted to announce the Young Adult Safe Haven pilot in Guildford has been extended for a further six months. ** Young Adult Safe Haven Address: 101 Walnut Tree Close, Guildford, Surrey GU1 4UQ Open 5pm – 9pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year**
The Young Adult Safe Haven is a service provided by Catalyst and Oakleaf that supports 18-25 year olds with their mental health and wellbeing. It is open from 5pm – 9pm, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and is located next door to the current adult Safe Haven in Guildford at Oakleaf’s premises. ** Young Adult Safe Haven – what we offer:** The Young Adult Safe Haven offers a safe place for young adults (18-25 year olds) to talk openly and confidentially about their feelings and emotions with peers and young adult support workers. The team consists of two Young Adult Support Workers who engage with attendees, provide emotional support if needed and signpost as required. Should someone present in crisis, they are signposted to the current Safe Haven next door in order to be seen by a Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN). ** How is this different to the current Safe Haven?** This service is only available for people aged 18-25 and has slightly shorter opening hours of 5pm – 9pm, 7 days a week. The mental health support workers can provide emotional and wellbeing support for young adults but will not provide crisis support. If people present in crisis, they will be signposted to the existing adult Safe Haven next door. ** How to access the Young Adult Safe Haven?** Similar to the current Safe Havens, the Young Adult Safe Haven is operating as a drop-in service and no appointment is needed. This walk-in service is adjacent to the main Guildford adult Safe Haven with a separate entrance.
