A new night café service has launched in Liverpool to provide a welcoming and safe space for people experiencing mental health related crisis.
The service, which officially launched today (Monday 9 April) is being run by Creative Support – a not-for-profit health and social care provider – with Liverpool City Council as part of the city’s pledge to prioritise mental health provision.
Named Liverpool Light (The Light), the service will be run by trained mental health support staff and will operate from 6pm to 12pm, 7 days a week, offering an alternative to the use of A&E for people at times of crisis or in need of targeted social support out of hours.
As well as individuals being able to drop in for support, emergency services and partner agencies will also be able to refer people to the service.
The service is located on London Road, close to campus and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. The Liverpool Light is delivered from Creative Support’s Liverpool Links base at 181 – 185 London Road, L3 8JG.
The University’s Student Welfare Advice and Guidance service is also available to all students. Our friendly advisers can give you information and advice about any issue affecting your welfare.
It is a confidential service and can be contacted during office hours (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) via email, phone (0151 794 5863), or in person at the Alsop Building on University Square.
The team offers daily drop-in sessions between 11am and 1pm.
Student can also access our Big White Wall facility, which offers a 24/7 safe and anonymous peer support community, and a free Space from Stress module.
