We have two mental health and well-being drop-ins in Birmingham. Both of our Pause services are for young people up to the age of 25. One is for those who are registered with a GP in Birmingham. The other is for students who go to the University of Birmingham.

Our team of well-being 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.

Need urgent support?

 

A mental health crisis is an emergency that possesses a direct and immediate threat to your physical or emotional well-being. 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.
