Changes to Respite Crisis Mental Health Services in East Surrey

In News by Nina Porter

The  overnight services for people experiencing a mental health crisis has changed and a new Crisis Overnight Support Service  replaced the Crisis House in Redhill from 1st February 2018

The new Crisis Overnight Support Service, offers overnight stays of up to 72 hours at a range of locations across Surrey and north east Hampshire as an alternative to home treatment or an inpatient admission.

Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SABP) are working with three supported living providers, who specialise in providing overnight support to people experiencing mental ill-health.

Access to respite care with the Crisis Overnight Support Service is managed by SABP Home Treatment Teams which will continue to manage people’s mental health care and treatment during their stay.

These changes have enabled funding to be diverted to secure the ongoing future of the four Safe Havens in Surrey.
