Thank you for visiting our website and showing an interest in JHP. Johnny's Happy Place came about after the death of our beautiful friend, son and brother Johnny Mackay, in October 2014. We wanted to create something wonderful in Johnny's memory which we hope will be a lasting legacy to the most unique, warm, funny, talented and compassionate person.
There are many people out there who, for one reason or another, through circumstance, are having a tough time. They might have anxiety issues, depression or just feel isolated. What we have done, with the help of some wonderful people, is created a beautiful community space/cafe within Keystone's building. WE ARE OPEN TO EVERYONE! JUST POP IN!

We are currently working on creating a weekend befriending service whilst we are shut and which will potentially continue once we are back open - we are working on a process whereby people text a number and we arrange a call back. The counselling will continue, hopefully from next weekend, they too will have phones and again, once this is worked out we'll let you know. Please bear with us while we work on this. All the board members are volunteers and all have jobs which, as with most of you, are pretty frantic right now. Hopefully this will be up and running by next weekend.
Stay home and stay safe.
We often get asked to help children. We always refer people to Youth Works Community College. It's an independent special school for learners aged 13 to 16 years with social, emotional or mental health (SEMH) difficulties, which offers a range of counselling, therapeutic and support services to meet the needs of children, young people and adults. They can help other schools with techniques and training.
