Happy OK Sad

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 the "I need urgent help" button above.

Coronation Street storyline - suicide and bereavement

Coronation Street recently ran a storyline that centred on a suicide, and the early days of suicide bereavement. 

If you can relate to, or feel affected by this storyline, then it’s important to talk to someone you trust, such as a friend, a family member, your GP, or a counsellor. You might also find it helpful to contact a support service, such as CALM, PAPYRUS or Samaritans.

If you can’t cope and need help right now, then click the “I need urgent help” button above, for details of how to get emergency mental health support in Warrington.

For information about local and national services offering bereavement support:

  1. Click the blue button “adults click here”, above
  2. Then click the dropdown heading “organisations offering bereavement support”

Some of the services listed in this section, such as Amparo and Support After Suicide, are specific to bereavement by suicide.

Join us promoting “In Your Corner”
Warrington’s mental health campaign for men

In Your Corner - men's mental health campaign

Following a local survey in 2016-2017, Warrington Borough Council and partners have 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.
