James' Place is a charity that helps men in suicidal crisis find hope for the future. They currently offer free, life-saving treatment to suicidal men in London and the North West and provide a safe, friendly, therapeutic environment in which men are cared for and respected.
The charity's mission is to help men aged 18+ who are in crisis, by providing quick access to short and focused one-to-one therapy. Their trained, professional therapists get quickly to the heart of a man's suicidal crisis and help him solve it.
James' Place offer an individualised person-centred intervention delivered over six to eight face to face sessions with an experienced therapist at their current centres in Liverpool and London. Men are able to self-refer or can be referred by a professional (including those working in health and community services), or by a friend or family member.
The charity is aiming to open three additional centres in Newcastle, Birmingham and Bristol over the next three years. Newcastle will be the first new centre to open, by the end of 2023. With a total of five centres across the country they will be able to treat 2,000 men a year which means that half the male population of England will be within two hours of a James' Place.
The Liverpool Society of Chartered Accountants is delighted to partner with this very worthwhile charity that addresses a critical public health issue at our prestigious, annual event.
