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.

If you need help right now, click "I need urgent help" above.
