BELFAST has one of the highest rates of suicide in the UK. From the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, the Northern Ireland Statistics & Research Agency has recorded almost 500 deaths, up to 2019.
Our organisation was established in 2021, creating a hub which provides a range of care services, delivered free by professional therapists, for people in mental distress.
Our hub has been operational for 7 months, and has delivered over 2000 hours care with our amazing therapies:- One to one talking therapies | Addictions counselling | Child art therapy | Teenage specific counselling | Play therapy | Advocacy | Bespoke training | Family support | SUICIDE & SELF HARM PREVENTION AND INTERVENTION SERVICE.
We have 44 amazing volunteers delivering our service, with no funding, all contributions and fundraising from people in the community.
Currently, we cannot facilitate our care to our full potential, as we have limited space. We have the scope within our current facility to add another floor and create a purpose built art studio to deliver our brilliant child art therapy programme, and also add 3 more counselling rooms.
So we appeal to the community once more to help us create something special to deliver additional counselling and support for people in need.
