Mental Health Support

Mental Health can affect anyone, no matter their age, gender or ethnicity and it can affect everyone in different ways. 1 out of 4 people experience a mental health difficulty each year, with half of these experiencing them at the first time by 14 years old and 3 out of 4 by the time they reach mid 20s (Department of Health 2011).

We understand that this time in your lives can be a difficult and daunting experience and if you want to talk to someone about mental health or think you might be experiencing a Mental Health difficulty please come and visit us at the counselling service.
