Mental Health Issues In The Community Talks | Ballymena

Dr. Steve Critchlow, a psychiatrist from Belfast, is coming to Montgomerys Restaurant, Ballymoney Street, Ballymena to give a series of talks on mental health issues in the community. Covering the topics ‘What is depression and what treatments are available?’ ‘Overcoming suicidal thoughts’ ‘Addictions and how to find help’ and ‘Anxiety and stress management’ Each talk will begin with a presentation of the topic; you can ask any questions you have followed by a coffee break. After that you’ll be invited to stay and have the opportunity to hear and reflect on these mental health issues  from a spiritual perspective. Here’s a comment from someone who has already attended. “Your advice was very practical, full of common sense and you explained depression in a very people-friendly way.” Others liked the self help tips while others said the spiritual element was very positive and gave them hope.
