Home > What We Do > 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.

We have THREE Talking Space venues across the city

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.

  • Talking Space operates between 5pm – 11pm
  • Its open to all adults (18+) living in Birmingham or Solihull, whether you are known to Mental Health services or not.
  • The service is available by appointment and Drop In’s (see days below). You can make an appointment by calling 0121 262 3555 or by emailing us.
