• Working with local Mental Health Ireland development officers to develop initiatives and to deliver workshops on mental health and wellbeing;
• Recovery initiatives such as peer-led day services, Recovery Fairs (mental health promotion events) and Recovery Colleges (learning to support your own recovery);
• Fundraising and accessing grants to support new initiatives.
The Mental Health Ireland web-site and Facebook page offer a range of resources and information about relevant services, events and training.
- General public, including children, young people and adults of all ages.
- People with mental health challenges and family members/associates/carers, as well as priority groups (farming community, LGBT, students, Travellers, those engaged in services, etc.)
