The Touch Base Project: Crisis Alternatives Support for Autistic Adults – Kent and Medway
A project for people who have a diagnosis of, or are awaiting evaluation for, Autism or Asperger’s and who are experiencing significant mental health difficulties.
Our team of professional staff, peer supporters, and volunteers aim to provide a detailed, individual, and specific mental health service, which is built around you and your needs.
We operate across Kent and Medway.
We are open year round and can offer an out-of-hours service, including weekends and bank holidays.
Our aim is to prevent a crisis. We are not a clinical service but if we can’t help, we will do our best to make sure we give you the details of appropriate forms of support in your area.
What we offer:
- 6 weeks of 1-1 Self Advocacy
- Peer Support Groups
- Social Meet-Ups
- Phone, Text, and Online (Zoom) Support
- Limited Capacity for Face-to-Face Support in the Community
We aim to contact all referrals within 3 days of receiving your form.
