Safe Haven Café
An out-of-hours, drop-in style café for people experiencing a mental health crisis, or who are on the verge of one. This groundbreaking approach to mental health crisis care was based on the suggestions and requests of people who actually use the service and has proved remarkably effective, bringing about a reduction in local acute psychiatric admissions to hospital.
The original café in Victoria Road in Aldershot has now been replicated at five locations across Surrey.
See here for details.
Teenage Safe Haven
Loosely modelled on the adult Safe Haven (see above), this service was devised and designed in line with responses from hundreds of local schoolchildren. It is for children aged 10 to 17 and is also open to any parents who are concerned about their children.
As well as working with individuals, the service also works with a number of schools in the area to teach their staff about aspects of mental health support.

The Source – Youth Support Services
The Source Cafe - Suite 3, Wesley Chambers, Queens Road, Aldershot - has been open since October 2000 and remains Aldershot's only youth cafe - a drug and alcohol free social place for young people to meet in the evening.
The building is kitted out with a kitchen, games room and lounge, and is equipped with the latest games consoles and table sports. It's a safe, drug and alcohol-free place that's so rare in any town, let alone Aldershot.
Open four nights a week as a drop-in, what young people get from a night at The Source is outside of what could be their normal night out. It's safe, it's fun and it's fulfilling.
It can offer a range of arts and crafts for anyone feeling crafty or who needs to express themselves in big and small ways.
