Family Resource Centres provide universal supports to individuals and families across the lifecourse. They are the only national programme that offers such a drop-in service to the public and as a result are presented with a wide range of social issues, and oftentimes underpinning this is mental health difficulties.

Our project is dedicated to providing education, training and support to staff and volunteers of all 121 Family Resource Centres, which will have a positive impact on their own mental health and the mental health of the communities they work in.

4 Key areas of work:

  • Promoting Social Connectedness

  • Promoting Community Resilience

  • Providing Pathways to Care

  • Combating Stigma
