Who we help
Please note that we are currently only taking self-referrals from men in Merseyside.
If you are a man facing a suicidal crisis in London, or anywhere else, please talk to your GP.
At James’ Place, we work with men who are experiencing a suicidal crisis. By this, we mean that you might be experiencing intense and distressing suicidal thoughts, perhaps feelings of hopelessness and despair, and you may have made plans or intend to act on your suicidal thoughts. You may have tried to hurt or kill yourself.
We support men in the Merseyside area who can self-refer or have been referred to us by a health professional. We are currently piloting an online support service for men in Hackney referred to us by our NHS partners only.
We support men (including those who identify as male), who are 18 and over and are willing and able to engage in talking therapy. You must be registered or eligible for registration with a GP.
