Staying Well

About the service

Open 7 days a week, 365 days a year, Staying Well provides psychosocial support within a safe, supportive and therapeutic environment.

We are making some changes to the Staying Well Service so that people in Sussex can get the right help at the right time with their mental health. This is in response to the significant need for support in our communities and demand on our services.

Southdown’s three Staying Well services will gradually become walk-in services in a staggered roll out so that people who are experiencing a self-defined mental health crisis (e.g. they feel at breaking point and in need of urgent help) can get help and support without needing to make an appointment. Brighton & Hove currently offers walk-ins, Eastbourne offers a same day access service via email/telephone referral, and Hastings offers access via referral.

Staying Well is provided by Southdown, in partnership with the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
