Pause is our city centre drop-in service, based in Digbeth.
Run by our partners at The Children's Society, it's a little bit different to other mental health services you might have experienced. The best bit about Pause is you don't need an appointment; you can simply drop in for a chat.
Whatever your reason for coming, whether you're a little worried about something that's going on in your life or you just need some space to think, Pause is here for you. Drop in and talk to one of the team, learn a new technique for managing your emotions or simply browse our online self-help materials. Pause is run by our friendly team of therapists, youth workers and volunteers, who are always on hand to lend a listening ear.
We also offer a range of workshops and groups at Pause - take a look at our events page to find out more about what's on.
Pause is cool, bright and spacious. You can feel safe here among people who are happy to chat and support you.
