A new mental health campaign called ‘Helping others’ has been launched by the Public Health Agency in partnership with NIAMH.
The TV advert ‘Life changing’ encourages the public to reach out and support someone they know who may be experiencing mental health problems. Asking, listening and talking to someone with a mental health problem can start them on the road to recovery. Just a few words can make a massive difference.
