Mental Health Associations (MHAs)

Mental Health Ireland has over 40 Mental Health Associations throughout communities in Ireland. They are all run by volunteers from within the community, including mental health professionals, service users and family members, who provide a range of supports for people with mental health conditions.

Mental Health Associations provide a range of services including providing advice and information on mental health issues, raise funds for social inclusion activities, support the development of peer-led day services and provide education and training opportunities for people with mental health conditions.
