If you need urgent mental health support, outside of normal working hours, the Staying Well Space is here for you.

Get help and advice in a relaxed, friendly and safe environment.

Our team of Recovery Workers are on-hand to provide non-judgmental support tailored to your needs; whether that’s simply listening or providing more in-depth support. Peer Supporters (people with lived experience of mental health challenges) are also available to talk to.  

Am I eligible?

The service is available for adults (16+) living in East Sussex with urgent mental health support needs.

How do I access support?

Support is provided at Southdown’s Wellbeing Centre in St Leonards-on-Sea (Carisbrooke House, Stockleigh Road, TN38 0JP). 

We are open 7 days a week: 6pm to 10.30pm on weekdays and 4pm to 10.30pm at weekends. Please note, the service is not a drop-in service and last admission to the service is 9pm every day. Telephone support is available in some circumstances, up until 10pm each day.

To self-refer or refer on behalf of an individual, contact us using the details below and we will complete a short ‘introduction form’ with you. We can do this by phone or email; whichever is easiest. You can also download the ‘introduction form’ from this page below. After 4pm, urgent referrals to the service can be made by calling 07384 467 593 or via our new freephone number 0800 0236475.
