People do not know help is available
People do not know where or how to find help
In an Emergency please dial 112 or 999 when someone is:

This will connect you with the National Ambulance Service, An Garda Síochana (the police), the Fire Services, Irish Coast Guard, and others.

As well as this webpage Wicklow GAA Health and Wellbeing Committee will also share help on social media using Wicklow GAA social media accounts
To raise awareness of the mental health and wellbeing supports available to everyone within County Wicklow.
Provide contact details for the 24/7 national crisis helplines on the boards
Provide information of the two Wicklow HSE Districts, ‘Numbers When You Need Them’ support services.
Promote awareness of the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’, which are evidence-based actions that we can be included into our everyday lives to improve our wellbeing.
Wicklow GAA Health and Wellbeing Committee, Wicklow GAA Healthy Clubs, Wicklow GAA, and the GAA itself are not providing actual services for people in need. People in need require trained professionals who can help the individuals in need.
This webpage and any social media postings are being provided to help people find the help they need. Wicklow GAA encourages people in need to seek the help they need by accessing fully qualified and trained persons.
If you or anyone you know are in an emergency situation please dial the Emergency Services on 112 or 999 immediately from any mobile phone or landline.
