About us

Limerick Mental Health Association

Limerick Mental Health Association (LMHA) promotes positive mental health across Limerick City and County. We have a permanent home in the heart of Limerick City. A group of community leaders set up LMHA in 2002.

Le Chéile

LMHA created and oversees the work of Le Chéile Peer Support Project, which promotes positive mental health within the local community. Le Chéile is a centre for people who have experienced difficulties in coping. Le Chéile provides support, friendship and helps people develop their talents and coping skills through the use of social and creative activities. We offer therapeutic activities and peer support.

We are helping the community to be well and maintain a positive mental health experience. One of our tools to achieve this is Wellness Recovery Action Planning – (WRAP) catered to you. These tools help you to manage the natural ups and downs of life.

We run Mental Health Week every year. The week will provide a forum to generate discussion, reduce stigma and promote positive mental health and well-being. Finally, Limerick Mental Health Week highlights the range of supports and services which are available within the local community to support our mental health.

We are affiliated with, and share the aims of Mental Health Ireland (MHI) – a national voluntary organisation. We promote positive mental health and support people who experience mental health difficulties.
