A new café called Circle has been launched in Ealing, providing support for children and young people in the area who are at, or near crisis point with their mental health. Instead of visiting A&E, children and young people can go to Circle for advice, support, or just to talk, with drop-in or appointment-based services 365 days a year.

The new service is the first of its kind in the UK, delivered by Hammersmith, Fulham, Ealing and Hounslow Mind (HFEH Mind) in partnership with the North West London CAMHS Provider.

The safe and calm space has been designed with young people, and also working closely with parents, carers and local partner agencies, including Community CAMHS teams, CAMHS Crisis teams, social care, youth liaison and diversion teams, and NHS North West London CAMHS Provider Collaborative.
