SafeHaven – a safe alternative to a Hospital Emergency Department


SafeHaven is a friendly, compassionate place with no judgement. If you or someone you care for is experiencing emotional distress, such as thoughts of suicide, and would like support, SafeHavens are available.

Many people have times in their life where they experience distress and thoughts of suicide. People may be feeling very alone and wanting social connections or might simply want a place to go where people understand. Often when people feel suicidal the only place to visit outside business hours is a Hospital Emergency Department. 


Everyone 16 years and over.

Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick supports children aged 16 years and younger.
