In advance of World Mental Health Day on Saturday 10 October, our Head of Support & Counselling, Peter O’Toole reflects on our experience this year.

The world is continuing to feel the impact of the on-going global health emergency – Covid-19.

We’ve seen this impact on the mental and emotional health of the people that we know, personally, professionally and in our various communities.

We have witnessed the raising levels of anxiety, fear, isolation, disempowerment and emotional distress that have affected so many.

However, we have also noted the resilience displayed by individuals, organisations and communities who have regrouped and dedicated themselves to relaunching, regenerating and responding during this difficult time.

We would like to commend and thank all our members and service users for the very evident spirit of support and connection shown over the last few months.

This time has shown us that although we have been separated by distance, we have also been able to remain connected in many ways that matter.

We’d like to take the time to remind you of the many services we have available through our Support & Counselling Service – some regular and enduring services and also a range of new offers developed in 2020.

Wishing you all the very best,

Peter & the Insight Counselling & Support team
