Solace Café

 

Aware are opening their Solace Café this coming Friday, 24th May. The café will be opening on a phased basis, with a full service intended from late June onwards.  

The café will be operating out of Urbun Café in Cabinteely, on Thursdays to Sundays from 5-10pm. (The actual Urbun Café will be closed to the public during Solace Café operating times, the Solace Café team are merely using their premises)

 

It is intended for any adult experiencing a mental health crisis, supporting someone in crisis or experiencing a mental health difficulty that is causing emotional overwhelm or a feeling of being unable to cope. The friendly Solace Café team will welcome you in a warm, supportive environment and support you through listening, signposting and crisis resolution skills.

 

Booking ahead on the day through their website solacecafe.ie is recommended (website operational from Friday!) – this is to ensure that the service isn’t crowded in any particular moment and everyone gets the attention they deserve. See further information attached.
