Mental health advice

The Northern Trust is working with a number of organisations and is keen to reassure the community that there is on-going support offered across the wider Northern area for those with mental health concerns.

If you or someone you know are concerned about mental health and need advice and support, there are a number of ways to get help. The main message is to seek urgent help and talk to someone early.

Talk to your GP

If you are concerned about your mental health contact your GP, who can help you decide what level of support you need. They will be able to refer you to one of our Northern Trust mental health services.

Contact your GP between 9:00am-6:00pm, Monday to Friday.
Outside of GP office hours, call the Dalriada Urgent Care Doctor on 028 2566 3500.

Talk to a friend

Sometimes it can be a relief just to tell someone you are struggling. Your friends care about you and can often offer a different point of view or way of looking at a problem.

Call a Helpline

There are many mental health support groups and contacts in the Northern Trust area offering confidential and free information and advice.

Protect your mental health

Sometimes it is the simplest things that can help strengthen our mental health. There are some positive steps that can help.

For further information and guidance on mental health support services, please refer to our useful links and leaflets and mental health contacts sections.
