Fresher’s Week Success for Liverpool Light

Fresher’s Week Success for Liverpool Light

The Liverpool Light, Creative Support’s pioneering mental health café, has been taking part in Fresher’s Week at John Moore’s University.

Staff from the service joined dozens of other organisations during the event at St George’s Hall.

Liverpool Light is an out of hours mental health crisis service providing a warm, welcoming alternative to A&E.

Manager at the service, John Unsworth, said, “The event went really well. We talked to a lot of students and handed out over 500 leaflets about the service.

“For most students this will be the first time they have lived away from home and although it’s an exciting time it can also be overwhelming. We wanted to sign post students to Liverpool Light and make sure they know, if they are struggling, help is available.”

The Liverpool Light is run in conjunction with Liverpool City Council and is based on London Road in Liverpool. It is open seven days a week from 6pm to 1pm.
