What is James’ Place?

Posted 7th March 2019.

In June 2018, James’ Place was opened by HRH The Duke Of Cambridge KG KT, having been financed by The James Wentworth-Stanley Memorial Fund as a non-clinical centre for men experiencing suicidal crisis in Liverpool. The centre is the first of its kind in the UK and is based in a townhouse in the Georgian Quarter.

We believe that men who are experiencing a suicidal crisis need to be in a space where they feel safe, valued and respected

We believe we deliver a safe and effective therapeutic intervention which will meet the needs of men using our service

We believe it is vital to engage friends and families in the care of the men using out service

We want James’ Place to be somewhere that people look forward to visiting and look back on with a renewed sense of hope.

We are excited to announce that from the 1st March we will be launching a 24hr  crisis text messenger service.

The James’ Place  crisis messenger service provides free, 24/7 crisis support across the UK. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis and need support, you can text JP to 85258.

We aim to connect every texter to a trained volunteer in less than 5 minutes to provide support in a crisis. They will listen to you and help you think through how you’re feeling, and will aim to help you take the next steps towards feeling better.

Texts are free from EE, O2, Vodafone, 3, Virgin Mobile, BT Mobile, GiffGaff, Tesco Mobile and Telecom Plus.

This service is powered by our trusted partner, Crisis Text Line.
