Mental Health Support

It's important to take care of your mental and emotional wellbeing during this challenging time.

With tightened restrictions, there is enhanced pressure on us all.

Whether you are concerned about yourself or someone else there is help available.

Support Available

The #Here2Help Smartphone App was developed by Noel McKee at East Antrim Counselling in order that local residents can quickly access contact details for a range of support services available to them within the borough. 

It aims to provide helplines for users to get support instantly while also providing a wide range of links to reading materials that can help people in their time of need.
