Council, alongside their Community Planning partners, had agreed as part of their Putting People First Community Plan to support any initiative that would help raise awareness of these issues which have had a devastating impact on families and our communities as a whole.
The #Here2Help Smartphone App was developed by Noel McKee at East Antrim Counselling in order that local residents can quickly access contact details for 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.
The #Here2Help app is now available and FREE to download from Google Play Store and the Apple iTunes App Store for your smartphone or tablet device.

Each and every one of us can feel like things are getting on top of us, but it’s important to recognise the signs that suggest what you’re feeling is becoming a problem. Maybe you’re having trouble sleeping, or you’ve lost interest in the things you usually enjoy. You might find yourself overreacting to things, or have difficulty concentrating.
All these things could be a sign of deeper problems under the surface. If you’re feeling like this, the right support can help recovery and help you to regain a positive outlook on life.
If you’re looking for advice on how to stay on top of tough times, or if you’re concerned about yourself, concerned about others or just want to be aware of the issue of mental health, then this App is for you.
