We are delighted that you are considering raising funds for Mental Health Reform and we are so grateful for your support! Your contribution can help play a role in helping people achieve their best possible mental health.
On this webpage you will find more information about what we do, tips and tricks for fundraising, and how we can support you as you so generously raise money for Mental Health Reform.
Our team are on hand to support you as much as they can, do get in touch if you would like to speak with us to have a chat about fundraising.
We created a Fundraising Toolkit
as a useful resource in your fundraising.
In the Toolkit, you will get some great hints and tips about fundraising, learn how we can support you and how your generous donations will make a difference!
Our campaign work relies on the generous donations, like yours, to make our voice louder.
Without our supporters, we would not be able to advocate for the needed change to our mental health system or work to ensure people can get the mental healthcare they need.
Our current campaigns include:
Pre-Budget Campaign: Calling on the Government to end the decades of neglect in mental health by investing in mental healthcare. We need to have our voice heard by Government so they will invest in the services and supports we need.
Reform the Mental Health Act (2001): Ireland’s Mental Heath Act needs to be updated urgently so that people who need to go to hospital for mental healthcare have their rights adequately protected and they can feel safe accessing the mental health services they require.
24/7 Crisis Mental Health Supports: A mental health crisis can happen at any time, day or night. Therefore, it is important that mental health services are available 24/7 so that people who need help can find it quickly, in their own community.
Mental Health Reform is the leading national coalition on mental health in Ireland.
We have over 60 member organisations, representing a broad range of interests, like housing, disability, children’s rights, human rights, ethnic minorities and many others.
Mental Health Reform provides a unified voice campaigning to drive progressive reform of mental health services and supports in Ireland.
An Ireland where everyone can access the support they need in their community to achieve their best possible mental health.
