Improving Mental Health
Self Help provide a range of support, services and opportunities, across the North West of England, for people living with mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, phobias and panic attacks.
Support and services we offer
Meet others with similar experiences. We offer a range of peer support which allow people, with lived experience of a mental health problem, to provide help and support to someone who is experiencing a similar difficulty.
Struggling to cope?
We provide 24-hour mental health crisis support to adults who are experiencing anxiety, panic attacks, depression, suicidal thoughts or are in crisis.The Sanctuary offers a space to talk and assistance with coping after the initial crisis.
We offer non-clinical support in a non-stigmatising manner, including:
a crisis support line during the day (6am – 8pm)
a place of ‘safety and support’ through the night (8pm – 6am)
The Sanctuary offers a space to talk and assistance with coping after the initial crisis. Overnight, The Sanctuary does not have beds so is not a place to sleep over. On the night of a visit, you can stay as long as you wish between 8pm and 6am. Some people choose to leave The Sanctuary once their initial crisis has passed and they have been able to calm down; others may need to stay longer. The length of your stay will vary according to your needs.
“Just knowing that the Sanctuary is there is important to me. I know the right help is there when I need it, where as in the past I’d struggle to cope every night.”
