About Mental Health Ireland

Welcome to Mental Health Ireland

Mental Health Ireland (MHI) is a national voluntary organisation established in 1966. Mental Health Ireland has 103 Mental Health Associations member organisations located in communities throughout Ireland.  We aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing and actively support persons with a mental health condition and their families on their journey towards recovery.

Mental Health Ireland has been an innovator in the promotion of mental health in Ireland for almost half a century now and are founding members and the Irish representatives for both Mental Health Europe and the World Federation for Mental Health.

The organisation’s core staff includes a CEO and support staff who operate at a national level and a team of Development Officers located strategically across the country. 


People who have good mental health:

  • Feel good about themselves
  • Feel comfortable with other people
  • Are able to meet the demands of life

Why should the average young person be concerned about mental illness and know about mental health? 

Here are just two facts:

  • One person in every three attending the family doctor has a mental health aspect to the medical problem
  • Of those who live to 65 – one in nine will spend some time in mental health care

As a member of the general public it is highly desirable that you should learn as much as you can about the importance of mental health and recognise and deal with causes of stress and other factors leading to mental breakdown. 

Remember that sometime in your life, you, a member of your family or a friend could become mentally ill and your understanding and help could be of tremendous support.
