A helping hand!
Of course, sometimes we all need a helping hand. If that’s you, take a look at following websites that can tell you were to get help.
If looking within County Wicklow for wellbeing and Mental health Services, the Wicklow Community Directory – Wellbeing/Mental Health Services website is a good starting point. It includes a section where you can find out about Counselling in Co Wicklow.

There is of course our own Crosscare Youth Information Hub . If you feel you need support with your mental health, it is important to remember that there are services that can help you.
