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

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”

Please help us to help you!

MHAPS’ purpose is to provide service where people feel empowered to find well-being in their lives.

If you have engaged with any of MHAPS’ services over the past 12 months, we invite you to take part in a short anonymous survey where your feedback can help us to see if we are on track, or if we need to change our services to better fit people’s needs.

We are happy to send or email you a survey form, or you can undertake it by clicking this link below or copying and pasting it into your browser.

This opportunity lasts until August 31st 2017.
