Happy ending as mental health charity finds a new home

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 27/11/2015

Sometimes a situation that once seemed to project gloom and doom eventually produces a happy ending.

This is the case for the mental health charity Praxis, which was recently forced to leave its long-term base at Hillsborough Castle. After a sometimes very tense stand-off with the authorities, the charity has now found a new joint home at Portadown and Tandragee, which promises to be a better alternative.

There is also the possibility of accommodating more young people, some of whom are already singing the praises of the new sites. It's great to record such a welcome development after months of despair.
