Once funding is available, See Spring members will design the 24/7 Drop-In Crisis Centre to meet our needs in Victoria.
It will offer an alternative to using the Hospital when someone is experiencing a mental health crisis.
Staffed only by people with significant Lived Experience transformed into Lived Expertise it will offer an anonymous safe space.
This 24/7 Drop-In will offer huge financial savings for other overwhelmed systems such as the Hospital ER, PES, walk-in clinics and police. Our non medical alternative will reduce the pressure on others by catching people mid-stream. Victoria does not yet have these essential middle layer community mental wellness places, and through your support we are creating them now.
Community safe spaces are effective as they are developed and offered by people who are the experts in the community. People with Lived Experience!
