Everything that Healthy Living Centres do has a mental health aspect and impact. The role of the Mental Health Working Group is to enable and assist Healthy Living Centres in fully realising their potential with regard to promoting resilience within their teams of staff and volunteers so that they look after themselves whilst providing mental health support within their neighbourhoods. In addition, the group hosts an annual mental health mobilisation on #WorldMentalHealthDay.

The group is chaired by Aidan OrmsbyARC HLC in Fermanagh, while its members are: Tony DohertyHLC Alliance, Jim MorganBelfast Health Development Unit, Amanda ElliottNorthern Area Community Network, Davina CoulterOAK HLC Fermanagh, Andrew SutherlandNewlife Counselling, Gillian HamiltonEBCDA, Lisa McAliskeyThe Verve HLC, Sarah HuggettPeninsula Health Partnership.
