Build Up To Mental Health Awareness Week 2017

Mental Health Awareness Week 2017 #MHAW17

Speaking ahead of Mental Health Awareness Week (8-14 May), NECS Chief Executive Officer and founder Marjorie Hunter said: “We welcome this year’s theme surviving or thriving. Here at NECS, we support a diverse range of children and adults many just about surviving. It is critical that together we raise the profile of mental health, provide choices and better solutions and highlight why it should be tackled early as a preventative measure rather than reactive when people are in crisis.’’

Since its foundation in July 2006, celebrating its 10th year anniversary, North East Counselling Services understands the needs of its clients, 91% stating they had been helped by the service.

Marj states, “Our exclusive approach to counselling benefits our clients and ourselves in ensuring continued improvements in our services. We support people to help themselves, our edict being ‘Live your life, don’t just exist.’ Every individual is unique and requires bespoke support, something we are delighted to have offered over the past ten years.”

Marj adds “Undoubtedly mental health should have as much a priority as our physical health, there’s a lot to be done. We are relentlessly developing our counselling service to achieve the best and most positive impact on individuals, families, organisations and to maximise the benefit to the community and local economy. Significantly more resource is required to help those who are just surviving – we pull together we can help them thrive.”

North East Counselling Services encourages everyone to raise the profile of mental health next week #MHAW17
