The Haven service offers mental health crisis support, seven days a week, 365 days a year to people of all ages living in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale or Craven and is based at The Cellar Trust in Shipley. Haven offers a non-clinical environment for people experiencing a mental health crisis. Trained specialists are on hand to work with people to develop their plans to stay well and cope better with distress in the future.
Staffed by Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust, The Cellar Trust and Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Haven supports people and where appropriate their families/carers to do an initial assessment of their needs. Working together with the individual we de-escalate their level of mental distress, discuss what is going on for them, and work with them to plan what they need to do to stay well.
