Maytree is a refuge for people in extreme suicidal distress and despair.

At Maytree, we provide people in the midst of a suicidal crisis with the opportunity for rest and reflection, and give them the opportunity to stay in a calm, safe and relaxed environment. We can support four "guests" at a time. The service runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our warm and friendly volunteers and staff team spend up to 77 hours with each guest over their stay, giving them the opportunity to talk through their fears, thoughts and troubles. On leaving, each guest receives a goodbye letter. This is a personal record written by a member of Maytree's staff team which reflects their stay, validates their struggles and honours their achievements.

A stay at Maytree takes you away from your immediate day-to-day pressures. It gives you the opportunity to look at everything that is going on in your life from a rather more distant perspective. You will have time to rest and think, and with the help of our team, to work out how to change things for the better.

Maytree won't judge you or expect anything of you. We're here to listen to you and offer you a supportive environment where you can express yourself freely. Our house is your home for the stay and we are all here to support you, answer questions and discover more about each other and our hopes and opportunities for the future. It might surprise you to learn that suicide or not knowing how to carry on can pass through anyone's mind if they are depressed, feeling trapped or faced with an apparently insoluble situation. We believe that listening, exploring and understanding a person's suicidal thoughts and feelings are the first steps in coming through a suicidal crisis. Our guests tell us it is a relief to use the word suicide, and be heard but not judged. It takes away the stigma and opens up opportunities for positive change and renewed hope.
