Safe Havens provide out of hours help and support to people and their carers who are experiencing a mental health crisis or emotional distress.
There are five Safe Havens open in town centre locations across Surrey and North East Hampshire to residents of any district or borough within this area. So, for example, if you live in Epsom you could go to the Guildford Safe Haven.
They are open evenings, weekends and bank holidays and are designed to give adults a safe alternative to A&E when in crisis. The website has links with the details of individual clinics. Telephone: 0300 55 55 222.
Having helped to develop two award winning services - The Wellbeing Centre (Hart and Rushmoor), a mental health recovery service, and The Safe Haven, a mental health crisis café - Judi and Zoe, the directors of Just Wellbeing decided to continue the work they felt passionate about and set up Just Wellbeing Consultancy.
They believe that, by providing innovative tools for someone to understand and manage their own mental wellbeing, a huge difference can be made. Another aim of their consultancy is to contribute to the reduction of stigma revolving around mental health issues, the building of resilience and making mental health as important as physical health through education and promotion.

Body Positive Dorset was founded by Philip Hawkings as a mutual support centre that was sought by individuals whose lives had been dramatically changed by contracting HIV and receiving the associated stigma attached. They began meeting once a month in each others homes and the service we have today was born.
As the organisation expanded, in 1994, a drop-in centre was opened in the Triangle area of Bournemouth. Another organisation, the Sanctuary was also operating in Bournemouth at this time, providing palliative care and respite for people with HIV. Body Positive Dorset worked closely with the Sanctuary until its closure in the late 1990's. The organisation was also active at a national level making representations to Parliment. This action paved the way for viral load testing to be more widely available.

An independent, arts related organisation established and run by professional practising artists who share their practice with vulnerable people. A Registered Charity, Creative Response was established in 1993 to relieve persons with mental health and or substance misuse problems by the provision of arts-related activities.
Our approach is to use both visual and performance related arts as a catalyst in a therapeutic environment. The atmosphere we create is unique, with an acceptance of people as they are and
working relationships are based on a foundation of mutual trust, care and support.
Participants are encouraged to develop their self-esteem and confidence. Through the art sessions,
we aim to help them overcome their fears and anxieties, to take responsibility for themselves
and to develop coping mechanisms for daily life.
