The Hope Café is a service for people who are experiencing mental health or emotional health crisis. This is not a traditional Cafe service – but rather, is a drop-in support service for people experiencing imminent mental health crisis.

If you are not in crisis, please do not access the Hope Café, but instead look to our Community Groups.
