Who is this for?

Pathfinder Crawley provides advice, information and support for people aged 18+ affected by mental health problems living in Crawley and the surrounding area, as well as carers, friends, professionals and other agencies.

What to expect

Pathfinder provides a single point of contact, so you won't have to fill in multiple forms and can access different kinds of support from a number of organisations. Our staff are trained to provide one to one mental health advice and support. You can email or call us.

Pathfinder services operate during normal working hours, if you are calling out of hours or can’t get through, just leave a message or drop us an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

We may not always be able to respond quickly as we’re not a crisis service but you can find contact details for other services in the Crisis Support section of this website if you need urgent help.
