Mental Health Ireland

Mental Health Ireland is the longest established mental health charity in Ireland. Throughout our history we and the Mental Health Associations have played a central role in reshaping how the public understand mental health issues.

Since our establishment in 1966, we have been front and centre in promoting positive mental health, supporting people with lived experience of mental health challenges in their recovery and bringing practical expression to national policy objectives.

Mental Health Ireland’s strategy Empowerment – From Ideas to Actions 2019 – 2021 is an invitation to become involved in something bigger, to be part of a dynamic movement that makes a real difference to many peoples’ lives.
