Together for You

Praxis Care is part of the “Together for You” consortium of leading mental health charities.

Together For You is an innovative project, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, aimed at delivering mental health and wellbeing services to a range of people across Northern Ireland in a joined-up way. Through a range of services we can help young and old, men and women, minority groups (Black and Minority Ethnic and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) and marginalised groups (prisoners, NEETS (Not in education, employment or training) and unemployed).

This is the first time nine leading mental health charities have come together to deliver a range of activities aimed at: educating people and their communities; raising awareness of mental health and encouraging help seeking, promoting good mental health; preventing mental illness and early intervention; and providing intensive support for those already experiencing mental ill health.

The Together For You Partners are:
