MyMind is providing FREE counselling services for those affected by Covid-19
MyMind's free online #Covid-19 sessions continue until the end of September. If you have been affected in any way by the pandemic or are feeling very stressed and overwhelmed, why not consider talking to a professional? Visit www.MyMind.org for more information.
The Covid-19 Pandemic has had a ravaging effect on mental health in this country. From the fear of contracting the virus to losing our jobs or suffering isolation or bereavement, it has been a very challenging time for us all. Now, more than ever, the importance of minding our mental health is very clear.
MyMind has been at the forefront of providing much-needed mental health counselling services since 2006. Our focus has been on providing affordable and accessible mental health services within the community, bypassing the need for clinical referral, long waiting lists and high-cost services.
During the Pandemic, MyMind has already provided over 15,000 appointments through the free Covid-19 project, funded by Sláintecare and HSE Community Operations Mental Health, and this service has been extended to the end of September 2021.
As we look ahead, and in the context of the unrelenting uncertainty presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, MyMind will continue to provide high quality, accessible and affordable services. We will continue to provide discounted rates to those who are not in full employment but who are in need of mental health supports. MyMind believes that everyone who needs access to mental health supports, particularly in the context of early intervention, should get that support.
Getting help and staying connected are essential to maintaining good mental health. Talking to a qualified professional is a proven and effective way of dealing with problems of stress or anxiety.
