New Online Hub Supporting Mental Health and Wellbeing

Claire Lightowlers

The PHA is delighted to partner with and support the group of organisations who have created a virtual wellbeing hub for the people of Northern Ireland during the COVID-19 Wellbeing Crisis.

The online hub can be found at www.mindingyourhead.info and draws together information, self-help guides & ways to find support on a range of mental health & wellbeing issues.

Prof. Hugo Van Woerden, Director of Public Health at the PHA said:

“Staff across many departments within the Public Health Agency, in particular staff within health improvement and social wellbeing, have been working closely with the online wellbeing hub to highlight the many psychological supports available to the community at this time.

"The partnership has been critical in co-ordinating helpful information being made available in one easy-to-access way, enhancing the services and supports already located on the Minding Your Head website. We hope this work will go some way to ensure important preventative and supportive work in mitigating against the impact of COVID-19 on people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing.”
