I Need HelpWe all deserve to enjoy life and feel good about ourselves. Sometimes however life can be tough.

Whether you’re feeling great and want to stay that way, you’re a bit fed up; or you’re struggling to manage your feelings, this site has links to information and tips ranging from how to boost your mood, to where to get help if you’re unable to cope.

The site has been developed for people living in Warrington, so some of the services are for local people only. The words Localservice2 indicate which services are aimed at Warrington residents. Many of the links are for national sites however, so the information will be relevant wherever in England you live.

So that it's easier for you to find what you're looking for, we've divided the site into different sections.

Click the blue buttons above to find information that's right for you.

Free "In Your Corner" mental health resources for men

In Your Corner - men's mental health campaign

Warrington has adopted the national In Your Corner campaign. This is a five-year men’s mental health campaign, run by the anti-stigma project Time to Change. The aim of the campaign is to encourage men to look out for their mates; and to be more supportive of the 1 in 4 of us who experience mental health problems in any given year.


Booking the "In Your Corner" resources

We’re inviting organisations across Warrington to host the "In Your Corner" campaign stool* to challenge stigma and raise men's awareness of mental health issues. Each venue or team which hosts the stool will also get an information pack which includes an explanation of the campaign; and Warrington specific resources (leaflets, flyers and coasters), relating to men's mental health. 

If you would like to host the campaign stool, then please email resources@warrington.gov.uk or ring 01925 443193. (There are "In Your Corner" campaign materials for young people too, so when you book the stool please make it clear whether you'd like the resources for adult men, or for young people).

* The "In Your Corner" stool is the type used by a corner man in a boxing match. The corner man’s role is to assist his teammate in the ring.
