“Yellow Ribbon is based in Portadown Craigavon. It came into existence over two years ago as a result of and a reaction to the growing demand for a constructive positive, supportive empathic and nonjudgmental response to teenage suicides and self harm mostly among adolescents and in younger adults in our Community. It was a salient issue which required a sensitive but innovative psychological response, at voluntary level and which would be seen to be efficient, transparent, accountable and one which ultimately will save young people lives and those of older adults in the wider Craigavon Community and across the province. Yellow Ribbon is inclusive of all ethnic groups living in our Community and extends their emotional support to all migrants.
We provide emotional and psychological support to family members who suffer from break ups, depression, panic attacks and issues such as self harming from alcohol and drugs.” Mental Health;Suicide Prevention
