A NEW out-of-hours mental health crisis service has opened in Barnsley.

The support hub offers free advice for anyone over 18.

Based at 10A Eldon Street, the hub is open Thursday to Monday from 6pm to 11pm for in-person or virtual support – there is no need for a referral or an appointment.

A spokesperson for Barnsley CVS added: “Individuals can visit for a chat or access support from trained professionals.

“The service also offers help in creating staying well and crisis plans and supports visitors to access other organisations that may be useful to them.”
