Crisis House Service

Turning  Point

Leicester, Leciestershire and Rutland Mental Health Crisis Service

In May 2017, Turning Point was commissioned by Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust to provide an enhanced crisis house service. The service includes a crisis house which provides support with accommodation where people experiencing a mental health crisis can stay for a short period to recover, a 24-hour telephone helpline and one-to-one support. We are delighted to announce a number of changes to the service.

New community-based crisis support available from October

The Leicestershire and Rutland service will be piloting a number of community outreach sessions from 9th October. 1:1 Appointments will be available in 8 locations around Leicestershire. You do not need a referral to access this service. You can book an appointment by either calling the crisis helpline on 0808 800 3302, or sending an email requesting an appointment to Leicestershire.Helpline@turning-point.co.uk Some locations will also provide a space where you can spend time amongst other people with experience of mental health needs including our peer support workers who are on their own recovery journey.
