Suicide prevention and mental health awareness charity ‘Talk To Tom’ have said that their long-awaited Arklow centre should be fully functional by the second week in February, news that is sure to delight the Wicklow service users who have been travelling to their Gorey premises.

Since he established the community-based mental health service in 2012, CEO and founder of Talk To Tom, Ray Cullen, has seen the demand for the charity’s services in Wicklow increase steadily, with many clients from the Garden County travelling excessive distances to access the resources they need.
