Sutton Crisis Café is a new service offering out-of-hours support to people in mental health crisis as an alternative to attending A&E. It has two main aims; to benefit people experiencing a mild to moderate mental health crisis by providing a safe, non-clinical supportive environment for them to use, and to reduce demands upon hospital emergency departments and other mental health and emergency services by providing a safe alternative to those services.
