Community Based Promoting Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Small Grants are now available in Moyle and Ballymoney.

The Public Health Agency (PHA) has identified non-recurring funding to address Suicide Prevention, Self-Harm, Mental Health and Emotional Well-Being and have commissioned North Antrim Community Network to facilitate. As such the Network is inviting community and voluntary sector organisations to apply for non-recurring awards to address the outlined themes. Grants are available of £1,000 per project. Applications will be assessed on the potential to improve health and wellbeing and on the ability to complete the work by the end of February 2017, including evaluation, by mid-March 2017. Applications are from Monday, April 4th until Wednesday, May 4th. They also should promote protective factors and build resilience, including e.g. early intervention, emotional wellbeing awareness work, increasing the capacity for self help and measures to improve quality of life.
