About Cygnus


We have been providing mental health and well-being services to people in Northumberland for over 35 years.


We have come a long way since we were founded in 1984; expanding our services, supporting more people and working in partnership with other organisations. To recognise the progress we’ve made, we changed our name from the Women’s Health Advice Centre (WHAC) to Cygnus Support in 2016.
