Turn2Me, a national mental health charity, has listed the four free mental health services available to people living in Cork in 2024.
These services include up to six free one-to-one counselling sessions; unlimited free support groups on anxiety, depression, relationship issues and grief; a free ‘Thought Catcher’ online mood diary; and free helpful articles on how to deal with issues ranging from exam stress to the menopause.
The charity stated that Cork has the second-highest sign-up rates for its services, after Dublin, and it expects this demand to grow in 2024. Turn2Me operates 365 days a year. The charity is funded by NOSP (the National Office for Suicide Prevention) and operates in the early intervention mental health sector.
Anxiety was the highest reported issue on the Turn2Me platform for people living in Cork in 2023 followed by depression and then relationship issues. The charity helps around 10,000 adults with their mental health every year.
