Helplink Support Services

Cause Description

Helplink Support Services is a not-for-profit organisation that provides accessible Mental Health and Conflict Resolution services.

Overview

Mission: Helplink Support Services mission is to provide accessible mental health and conflict resolution services; locally, nationally and internationally.

Aim: our aim, in Helplink, is to provide mental health and conflict resolution services that are accessible and low cost or free – 7 days a week. Helplink achieves this aim though working in partnership with other like minded organisations and by providing our services online nationwide/internationally (to both rural and urban communities) and face-to-face in the West of Ireland. 

History

Background: Helplink is an award winning not-for-profit organisation (company limited by guarantee) that has been providing its services to the public since September 2012. Helplink has a full Board of voluntary Directors/Members and we abide by the ‘The Good Governance Code of Ireland’. Our risk management processes, policies and procedures are robust and are at or above industry standards. The organisation’s Founder Lochlann Scott developed and began Helplink because he saw from his work within social care/social work and his academic studies in psychology and health psychology that there were a lot of people either not able to, or not willing to,
engage with mental health services for many reasons. These may be due to: the stigma surrounding attending such services, issues with social anxiety, the limited hours and days these services were available and/or limited or no access to supports in their areas.

Furthermore, Lochlann saw through personal and work experiences that mental health and conflict resolution are in fact deeply interconnected and no organisation was offering both of these services in a connected manner. As a result he created the organisation’s family/housing/community mediation service and Ireland’s first online mediation service. Eventually these mediation services developed into what is now the organisation’s Conflict Resolution Centre under the guidance and development of one of our longest serving Board Members Lorraine Lally.

Although Helplink was a multi-award winning social enterprise, it did not have non-profit status until mid-2014. Helplink became a non-profit organisation in July 2014 to enable the organisation to avail of funding from public and private bodies in order to expand its current services/programmes and begin to develop/offer new ones as well.
