What should a safe space alternative to Emergency Departments look like?

If you experience a mental health issue, or support someone who does, would you like to help design a safe space alternative to Emergency Departments?

The State Government has committed to implementing a number of recommendations from the Sustainable Health Review, including the establishment of a Safe Haven Café, a place to go when medical attention is not required but people need a place to feel safe and have access to non-judgemental support.

The WA Mental Health Commission has funded the Consumers of Mental Health WA (CoMHWA) to gather a wide range of views to ensure the space meets the needs of consumers and family members/friends in a caring/support role. We welcome your input via the surveys

Individuals with a lived experience of mental health and or alcohol/other drug issues
Families, carers and support people
Service providers
