Health Directory publishes list of essential Christmas contacts

Health, Ireland’s newest dedicated on-line health directory, has published a list of essential Christmas contact numbers for a host of organistations that can assist those who are lonely, feel the pressure of Christmas, are under financial strain or just need to talk to someone about their concerns.

Health is the brainchild of Catherine Breen, a practicing beauty, body and complementary therapist with almost 13 years experience. The premise of Health is to give users comprehensive and up to date information about professionals working in the health and well being sectors in Ireland.

Ms. Breen commented “For those who find Christmas a particularly stressful time, Health has published the contact details for organisations such as Aware, Alone, Childline, Mental Health Ireland, Focus Ireland, Body Whys and a whole host of organisations that can help us at what can be a very trying time.”

“We would like to think that Health can alleviate some of the uncertainty about what help is out there, particularly at Christmas. By simply logging onto the site, the user will be able to get details about the group that can help them and all the details to contact that organisation.”

One such health professional who welcomes this development is Dr. Ravi Kumar of Clonard Surgery, Wexford Town. Dr. Kumar commented “Easy access to a host of crucial health services and their contact details is to be welcomed at what is traditionally a very busy period for all health services and professionals.”
