Crewecial (Crisis Café) 

We are incredibly excited to be launching Crewecial,  delivering a much needed service supporting Cheshire people. Working closely with health and social care partners in recent months to deliver community based options for people experiencing a mental health crisis makes the café a central part of our local offer in Crewe.

Crewecial is a Crisis Café in Crewe which will provide a safe, welcoming and comfortable space away from a clinical environment for people in crisis, and those seeking to prevent the onset of a crisis. The onsite team will provide emotional support and resilience building as well as support people to develop positive relationships.

We can also provide practical advice and signposting. Where needed we will support people in a mental health crisis to access other support
