Q: Is support only available via telephone or visiting the Safe Haven in person?
A: At the moment, yes, but we are looking at other ways to access the Safe Haven service. We are currently exploring virtual options including Zoom and webchat service. You can also be referred to the Safe Haven via your GP or another health and social care professional. The important thing is to access support when you are struggling.
