Our Nightlight Service is proud to provide urgent support, crisis intervention and emotional support to people experiencing a mental health crisis in Hertfordshire as an alternative to statutory pathways.
We provide support to adults across Hertfordshire 7 days a week, 365 days a year through our helpline, crisis centres, crisis cafes and a weekend Crisis House. We aim to provide a safe space for people in crisis to talk and feel supported, be listened to without judgement, access relevant support with problem solving and facilitate access to external services when necessary.
I started with Nightlight at the very beginning as a crisis support worker 6 and a half years ago, answering the first call to the service. During this time, I have had the opportunity to grow and develop, moving into my current leadership position. Over the years, it has been a pleasure to support so many people and help them to a better place in their lives. I have been really lucky to be surrounded by wonderful colleagues, who through any challenge are always there with reassuring words, a chance to debrief and the offer of a cup of tea.
