NW200 Support Mental Health Charity Olive Branch

NW200 Support Mental Health Charity Olive Branch

Every North West 200, a very worthy charity gains support and this year’s is Olive Branch, who help people suffering mental health related problems.

These past two years have proven extremely tough in particular for those who suffer psychologically and it’s good to see the NW200 helping raise awareness.

Speaking about Olive Branch becoming the 2022 designated NW200 charity, Chairwoman Leoné Paul stated:

“We are absolutely thrilled to have been selected to be the NW200 charitable partner for 2022.

In light of the current mental health crisis here in Northern Ireland it is vital that our services are known throughout the province and we can’t think of a better way to raise the awareness of our charity and services than through collaboration with the NW200.

The reach of the NW200 will no doubt bring people forward to Olive Branch to receive the help they need.”

She continued:

“The pandemic has had a very detrimental effect on mental health Province-wide and we have three free of charge, no appointment necessary, self- referral Mental Health and Counselling Centres in Coleraine, Magherafelt and Ballymena.

Our clients can come of their own free will and don’t need a doctor or any other organisation’s referral at the exact time they feel the need.”

Mervyn Whyte MBE added about today’s news:

“Mental health issues can affect anyone and everyone, from every walk of life. The work Olive Branch is doing is vital in ensuring those who suffer know they are not alone.

Olive Branch offers professional and vital help at a crucial time and we hope North West 200 fans will support the work the charity does in the same way they have supported so many other very worthwhile charities down the years.’

Another timely reminder that the jointly title sponsored FonaCAB & Nicholl Oils North West 200, opens the pure road racing ‘Majors’ calendar for 2022, taking place from the 8th-14th May.
