A new mental health centre will open in St Helier next month.
The Listening Lounge will be a free, walk-in service, run by the well-being group LINC, to help people avoid getting to crisis point before they access support.
It will be available to islanders over the age of 18, and open 12 hours a day - between 10am and 10pm. Counselling sessions will also be available three days a week between 4pm and 9pm.
Initially it will run as a pilot scheme from 4 November until 31 December 2020.
Islanders can self-refer, and if an assessment finds they need more specialist help they can be directly referred to Jersey Talking Therapies without having to go through their GP.
