Talking Space (Inc Crisis Support)

The aim of our Talking Space service is to provide a safe, welcoming place where people can go outside of normal working hours, instead of A&E or other urgent services, if they are feeling emotionally distressed or are in a mental health crisis.

Delivered in partnership with Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust, Talking Space offers a safe place to come and chat face to face with our Intervention Workers. There is also access to clinical staff if needed.

  • We currently operate 7 evenings a week from 6pm and there are plans to expand the service across the city to other locations soon.

  • Our service is open to all adults (18+) living in Birmingham or Solihull, whether you are known to Mental Health services or not.

  • The service is only available by appointment.

  • You can make any appointment by calling 0121 262 3555 or by emailing us.

  • The service is located at: Beechcroft Centre, 501 Slade Road, Erdington B23 7JG
