MyMind is opening a new centre in Cork city to serve the growing demand for affordable mental health support.
After opening the Cork branch in 2013, MyMind saw an increase of 86% in appointments in 2017, compared to the previous year. MyMind provided nearly 5,000 appointment to the people of Cork in 2017 alone.
The new centre – located at Unit 6 South Bank, Crosses Green, provides counselling and psychotherapy in different languages for adults, teens and children, including Hungarian, Polish, Lithuanian, Italian and English.
The new centre will officially open to the public on Monday, 26th March, relocating from its previous address at 9 Dyke Parade.
The new centre will increase capacity for the service by 40% to serve more people in the Cork area who need support with issues such as anxiety, depression, grief and loss, addiction, stress, low self esteem and relationship issues, to name a few.
MyMind CEO and founder Krystian Fikert said, “Now in our fifth year in Cork, we have seen a huge increase in the need for support around mental health issues that most of us struggle with at some stage in our lives. By opening a bigger centre, we can meet this need head-on and focus our work on creating the best possible outcomes for our clients.
“We would urge anyone not to suffer alone if they are struggling with their mental health, and not to be afraid to seek help if they need it.
“At MyMind, our goal is to make it as easy as possible to get this help, when someone makes the decision to reach out for it.”
