Here at the Cork Gay Project, we provide support and resources for the Gay Community.
Many people aren’t sure what the term mental health means and only think of mental illness when they hear the term. But mental health is more to do with our overall sense of well-being and how we feel we are getting on in our lives, as well as how we feel about ourselves and those around us. It is normal to feel worried or down at times and one in four people will experience a major mental health problem at some time in their life. So if you are concerned about your mental health you are not alone. Mental health problems like anxiety and depression are relatively common and with the right help and support most people recover fully and get back to living their lives the way they want.
