Mental Health

There are times in everyone’s lives when things feel too much, when life begins to overwhelm us emotionally and we need help. At these difficult times we sometimes need someone outside our usual network of family and friends to offer a confidential space to listen and be alongside us as we work things through.

The church has always been a place where people can come along and pray, light a candle and perhaps talk to the Parish Priest. However, churches may not always have the skills to help or be able to offer the right support and understanding and that is why we would like to refer you to the following groups who may be able to offer the help and support you need:
