Michelle told Causeway Coast News: “I am all too well aware of the need out there for those experiencing mental health problems.

“Mental health is a growing problem in our society – it affects young and old, men and women, we all know someone who has experienced it or is currently experiencing it.

“My aim is to set up a project where people feeling lonely, anxious or in despair can come along and receive help.

Sometimes a friendly face is all that is needed, sometimes we just need someone to talk to that is non-judgemental.
“I am reaching out to the community for help,” she said.
