Action Mental Health, Will to Give member is delighted to announce that its merger with New Life Counselling takes effect today.

This welcome news is recognition by the Boards of AMH and NLC that by combining resources, services and expertise, there is a better chance of developing and sustaining mental health support for local communities in these challenging times.

Going forward, the AMH Board is determined to tackle the disparity of support between physical and mental health services and this development is a mark of its commitment to ‘Taking Action on Mental Health’.

The new partnership takes full effect from today, April 1st, 2020, which means the two charities are now totally integrated.

Like many charities, the Action Mental Health’s & New Life Counselling’s face to face services have been temporarily interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, great efforts are now in place to continue to offer support to their clients in a range of new ways.

In future, once the effects of isolation and social distancing come to an end, all services will return to normal.

The NLC service will, with a refreshed brand, retain its name, which is well known and recognisable to local communities, clients and professionals.
