So, maybe you’re feeling anxious…….

or perhaps depressed……..?

You may be struggling with an addiction?

You might feel overwhelmed and confused?

Maybe you need more information......

or perhaps help for you individually.....

or could a support group

or workshop help?

But maybe you just don’t know.…….

you only know what you don’t want ……..

and you don’t want to be like this forever.

But can anyone understand what it’s like for you?

We can!

Everyone here has their own struggle these same things……

and it's our great strength!

Last year we helped over 1500 people......

maybe we can help you too?

You only have to ask

Mental Health Advocacy and Peer Support (MHAPS)

We assist people who experience mental distress, mental illness and / or substance addiction through their choice of services towards recovery.

We offer a warm welcome and comfortable place where people are accepted and listened to.

“Together on the road to wellbeing”

MHAPS staff are successfully working one-to-one with our peers by phone, online meetings and email. People still on workshop-based programmes when the lockdown came into effect are being worked with individually and in groups, as well as receiving revision materials.

Our phones are being answered and voice and email messages are quickly responded to. We are now making appointments to meet with people at our offices from June 2nd onwards. During June and July our regular schedule workshop based programmes will be restarted.
