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.

Warrington Time to Change Hub

Time to Change is a social movement which encourages us all to talk more openly about mental health. The aim of the movement is to change negative attitudes and behaviours towards people experiencing mental health problems.

Local T2C Hub Image

Warrington is working closely with Time to Change and has set up a local Time to Change Hub. The Hub recruits and supports volunteers with lived experience of mental health problems (Champions). The role of Time to Change Champions is to challenge stigma and discrimination associated with mental health problems. The Champions do this by getting involved in campaigns, events and activities across Warrington.

If you’re interested in getting involved, or would just like to find out more visit Warrington Time to Change Hub. The local Hub is led by Warrington Speak Up, in partnership with Warrington Borough Council.
