Princess Alexandra Hospital Crisis Support Space
Brook RED are excited to partner with Metro South Addiction and Mental Health Service as the peer support provider at the Princess Alexandra Hospital's newly opened Crisis Support Space! The space is collaboratively run by two peer workers from Brook RED and one mental health clinician from MSAMHS. Our peer workers are available Thursday through Sunday evenings to support people who attend the Emergency Department in suicidal distress
The lovely people at Griffith University's Australian Institute for Suicide Research and Prevention (AISRAP) have completed the evaluation of our amazing PAUSE program and you should give it a read! PAUSE works with Logan Hospital Emergency Department in Queensland Australia and provides community-based peer support to people who have presented to the Emergency Department experiencing suicidal distress.
