Solidarity in a Crisis is a peer delivered emotional support service for people going through very difficult life events and feelings of emotional or mental health crisis. We provide three different services:
We provide support to anyone who lives in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham. We are not qualified therapists but are trained to support people in a crisis short-term.
Co-designed and co-delivered by people with lived experience of mental health needs, addiction recovery and carers, the team helps to promote recovery, and enhance feelings of belonging and hope to those in distress; whilst helping to prevent people reaching crisis point.
By listening empathically and non-judgementally, we support people to get to the other side of a crisis and we can also point you in the direction of helpful agencies and organisations near to you. We support people who have been referred to us by Health Care Professionals, social services and other agencies.
Solidarity in a Crisis was developed in Lambeth in 2013 and our parent organisation is a charity called Certitude. Since 2013 we have expanded into Southwark and Lewisham.
The Out of Hours Crisis Helpline is a short-term peer lead non-clinical community-based crisis support service for adults experiencing a mental health crisis in the London boroughs of Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark.
