The Northern Board and the Northern Investing for Health Partnership, through their commitment to improving the health and well-being of the people in the NHSSB area have commissioned the Zest organization to provide a support and outreach programme for families in the Mid-Ulster and South Antrim areas.
The focus of the project is to address the issues of self-harm and suicidal behaviours by providing information and awareness on self-harm, understanding of the ‘person behind the behaviour’, looking at relationships within the family and learning problem-solving skills to help families overcome some of the problems that lead to these feelings and behaviours.
Zest also delivers a range of services in the Western Health and Social Care Trust area.
This area ranges from Limavady in the north through Derry, Strabane, Omagh to Enniskillen in the south.
These services include:
- Self-harm Intervention Programme (SHIP)
- Zest’ own self-referral counselling and complementary therapy services.
