Solidarity in a Crisis – Out-of-Hours Peer Support

Overview

Solidarity in a Crisis supports people in distress by providing out of hours emotional support over the phone and in person. The service is run by Peer Supporters who have their own experience of facing and overcoming crisis.

Listening with empathy, care and concern – Solidarity in a Crisis (SiaC).  SiaC provides out of hours, phone support to people in Lambeth and Southwark experiencing a mental health crisis.  All SiaC Peer Supporters have lived experience and believe that this personal knowledge plays an important part in enabling them to offer a very a different kind of mental health service.

In addition to relying on personal experience, all the Peer Supporters receive extensive training and ongoing support from the management team and their peers.

People who call Solidarity in a Crisis are often isolated and have no one else to turn to. The service provides an important support role throughout the weekend when most mental health services are not operating.
