Crisis Prevention at the Haven:

We have a telephone service between 5 and 8 pm Sunday through to and including Thursday. During that time clients can also come in if they feel that a 1:1 would be more helpful in making them feel safe. In addition, we have outreach where we visit clients if and when they may have special difficulties getting to us.

Crisis Prevention service 


Supporting carers for people with PD: we now operate a telephone service for carers of our registered client.

This will be available 10 am-12 noon every Friday. The advice will be practical rather than clinical. We cannot discuss the client but can talk about situations generally- what is helpful to do and what is not.  We cannot intervene on the carer’s behalf or deliver messages to the client they care for.  In due course, we may be able to develop the service with your help. This could include more specific support and groups. This service is still available as it is run over the phone.

You will be able to speak to Pernille Petersen the CEO only.

We are now at Colchester and Clacton Crisis Cafe Thursday and Tuesday starting at 17.45 Please ring an ask for a leaflet. 01206 572215.
