The Sanctuary report (Self Help Services)Leave a Comment
An independent report on The Sanctuary: Manchester’s first year, prepared by Dr Judith Gellatly from the University of Manchester, is now available to download here.
The report reveals that the service, which provides support to people having a mental health crisis, has helped scores of people in it’s first year and made a vital difference both to people’s lives and other local services, such as the local A&E department.
Over 242 people have received support from The Sanctuary since its launch last year. The service offers initial telephone support followed by an invitation for people to come along to the service, which is open during the night, and spend time in the calm atmosphere of The Sanctuary, supported by on-site workers and volunteers.
