Mental health is a very common illness, but during times of recession and worry, the numbers of people with mental health problems soar and Tipp Fm would like to openly discuss the issues involved so as to make sure that those who need treatment know where they can get it here in the county.

Throughout the week, Tipp Fm will support Mental Health organizations that are active in our communities all over the Premier County. Tipp Fm will provide a platform for those very brave people who have come through depression, addiction and various forms of mental illness. Through their stories, Tipp Fm will highlight mental health issues from the various treatments available and will aim to rid society of the stigma associated with mental illness.

On Saturday, May 21 between 10.00am and 12.00pm, Tipp FM will broadcast a full programme featuring representatives of the various Mental Health organizations.

Tipp FM has set up a dedicated face book page with contact details for the various organizations and a forum discussing positive mental health. Find the link on www.tippfm.com

Tipp Fm believes that ‘Your Mental Health Matters’.
