Crisis House - any experiences?

I am currently waiting for a bed in a crisis house as an alternative to a psych ward. Has anyone had any first hand experience of staying in one, working there or being a visitor at all? I am in London.

I've heard very good things about the Maytree.

I have stayed in one. My impression, from talking to other residents, is that they vary for all sorts of reasons, and that in general they are preferable to a ward. You are welcome to pm me if you would like to.

Thanks both for your responses. I should be going in on Wednesday probably, I am pretty nervous. If I think of any questions I will PM you erinaceus, thank you for the offer.
