Safe Haven at Royal Perth Hospital
The Safe Haven at Royal Perth Hospital provides a calm, gentle and quiet space where people can receive early intervention mental health distress management and problem solving support from both peer workers with lived experience, and clinical support staff.
It is designed to work alongside emergency departments to improve an after-hours alternative option to people experiencing mental health distress. This model offers face-to-face psychosocial assistance via the peers and connection to service providers in the community to address areas of individual need.
