Where does your money go?

At Limerick Mental Health Association we endeavour to promote positive mental health, reduce mental health stigma  and provide support to people who have difficulty coping.

One of the ways we will use your donation is to support the Le Chéile Peer Support Project. Le Chéile is our project in Limerick City.  It is a safe, welcoming place for people under the care of mental health services.  We provide friendship, support and fun through activities, wellness courses and classes.  Our project helps to reduce social isolation and loneliness that can be a feature of living with poor mental health.  We encourage people to be active, to advocate for themselves and others and to life a happy and fulfilled life.

Donations will also be used for the maintenance of our building. We have a permanent home in the heart of Limerick City. Donations can also be used to help us advertise our classes for new and prospective members. Finally, donations may also be used for staff and volunteer training and supports.
