Mental Health Reform, today, held a Showcase event for its member organisations in Merchants Quay, Limerick to mark European Mental Health Week.
The event was an opportunity for elected representatives to learn about mental health charities in the Mid-West and the positive impact of their work in the voluntary and community sector.
Organisations at the showcase included ALONE, ISPCC, Mental Health Ireland, Doras, Rehab, Samaritans, HUGG, Shine and Focus Ireland.
Mayor of Limerick City and Council Francis Foley hosted the event in celebration of European Mental Health Week which takes place from 22-28 May 2023. The goal of this year’s Awareness Week is to increase understanding and learning about mental health in our communities, schools, workplaces, and at home.
Fiona Coyle, CEO, Mental Health Reform commented: “We are delighted to be in Limerick today to mark European Mental Health Week. This Showcase is an ideal opportunity to come together and highlight the wide range of mental health supports provided by charities across the Mid-West. From suicide support networks and housing supports to counselling services and recovery, our members deliver vital services to communities in the region.
We hope that today’s Showcase shines a light on the importance of mental health and fosters meaningful connections between elected representatives and the voluntary and community sector.”
