Community, What's On
Buttercrane MHAWButtercrane Shopping Centre and their nominated charities, Samaritans, PIPS and the Michaela Foundation will be hosting a series of events on the Mall to raise awareness of Mental Health issues as part of Mental Health Awareness Week, which takes place from 8th – 14th May. Good mental health is more than the absence of a mental health problem.
  Mental Health Awareness Week encourages everyone to look at mental health from a new angle. Rather than ask why so many people are living with mental health problems, the initiative asks why too few of us are thriving with good mental health.

25th March 2017The Royals are also highlighting the issue of men’s mental health in recent weeks through their charity Heads Together and their #oktosay campaign.
  Speaking to Newry Times, Peter Murray, Buttercrane Centre Manager said, “This is an issue which affects our whole community – young and old and it’s something each of our nominated charities face on a daily basis. “PIPS, Samaritans and the Michaela Foundation can offer help, support and assist those ‘not thriving’ to take positive steps to help them feel better.
  Peter added, “This is a campaign Buttercrane is very proud to support and we’re delighted to work with our nominated charities and be part of a national conversation on Mental Health.” Visit the Buttercrane and support their nominated charities from Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th May and help ignite a national conversation about whether we are surviving or thriving and what we can do to bring about change.
