Our crisis prevention service, Staying Well

Our Staying Well service is open for professional referrals from Sussex Partnership Foundation Trust and other Pathfinder members

Are you a mental health professional and looking for crisis prevention support for someone?

Our Staying Well service is currently being offered by phone and via online video calls and groups. When government guidelines allow, it will be run from a safe space in the centre of Worthing.

Staying Well is available in evenings and at weekends for people in need of extra support to prevent them going into crisis. It is for anyone over 18, who lives in West Sussex and is struggling to cope out of hours. Anyone referred to Staying Well will receive a call from one of our workers who will discuss what support is needed and get consent from the person to find out more about them.

We are open seven days a week: Monday to Friday, 6pm to 11pm and Saturday and Sunday, 12.30pm to11pm.

Your visits to Staying Well

When you are contacted by us, we can arrange your visit to Staying Well. For future visits, please note the service is not a drop-in and individuals need to phone in advance on each day prior to attending.

When you come to Staying Well, you will find a warm and friendly environment where our recovery and peer support workers will be on hand to listen, give peer support, help you develop a crisis plan or look at how your plan is working and give advice about other support.
