Mental Health Support and Strategies: A Community Support Perspective

Sunday 15 November 19.00 – 20.00

Lincoln

Day 2 of a three day series has Stacey Marriet speaking as the Co-ordinator for Crisis Cafes, Acts Trust in Lincoln, UK.
Lincoln’s Night Light Cafes are open seven nights a week for people struggling with their mental health. The cafes first started in March and work on a referral only basis. You refer yourself by contacting the café in advance. The cafes aim to be there to support people experiencing a crisis, hoping to reduce the suicide rate and offer hope that there are people out there that care. For a while, the cafes were online, but they have now resumed their in-person work in accordance with Government guidelines. There are only three guests a night in a bubble with three volunteers per night. The cafes provide a peaceful atmosphere where people can relax, de-stress and have food and drink. There are activities on offer to help with relaxation. They provide a friendly non-judgemental environment. Stacey will share her community support insight and practical steps that anyone can apply to support their mental health during the pandemic
