Birmingham wellbeing services
Our Pause mental health and wellbeing drop-in in Birmingham is for young people up to the age of 25 who are registered with a GP in Birmingham.
Our team of wellbeing professionals will talk to you about whatever is on your mind. We may suggest resources or activities that can help, arrange for more one-to-one sessions, or refer you to more specific services if you need it.
Regrettably at this point in time we have reduced capacity to provide wellbeing services, we are no longer providing drop in (last one will be 16/03/2023) and are suspending referrals for the wellbeing service for a 3 month period. We will update after that period
All our other services will continue as normal.

Need urgent support?
A mental health crisis is an emergency that possesses a direct and immediate threat to your physical or emotional wellbeing. In these situations, it's important to get help quickly.
Try to stay calm and ask someone for help if you need it. It could help to tell someone you trust, maybe a family member or a friend. They can be with you and help you decide what to do. They can also contact services on your behalf.
If there is any immediate risk to life, contact the emergency services by calling 999.
